Subject – Science, Social Studies
Grade Level – K-3
Now it is time to look at the food chain of the ocean. Have students think about the small animals all the way up to the biggest animals. Talk to the students about what the foodchain is and why it is so important to survival and to keep animal and plant populations under control. What would happen if an oil spill killed a coral reef? How would it affect the other plants and animals in that immediate area? What can we do to help protect plants and animals of the ocean? What has been some hot topics in the past as far as plants and animals in the ocean being killed or hurt for no reason or till they were almost extinct? Some examples of this are whale hunting for their blubber. Dolphins getting trapped and killed in fish nets for tuna, Seals pups being killed for their fur and oil spills killing many different animals in the oceans and plant life that takes years to grow back the way it was. And due to the oil spills the thousands of animals that are killed. Also pollution on beaches that gets in the ocean that many animals swallow and are killed. Examples are pop bottles and paper products.
