Rating

Students will learn that there is a finite amount of carbon on earth, which moves around in the environment, from one place to another. Activity is scaleable from elementary to high school with options to introduce advanced content. Wrap up includes role playing the carbon cycle with the addition of human influences (e.g. burning of fossil fuels). Activity can be done in classroom or outside, includes working in a group and role playing. Grades 3-12. This resources is part of the Our Changing Ocean and Estuaries Series

What happens to the delicate larvae of ocean creatures when they are exposed to increasing acid levels in the ocean? Stanford University and Bodega Marine Lab scientists conduct an experiment on how acidity levels expected in the next century affect the 28,000 genes of tiny, young sea urchin larvae.

Ocean Health Index
Conditions of Use:

The Ocean Health Index is a new, comprehensive measure of the ocean’s overall condition – one that treats people and nature as integrated parts of a healthy system. The ocean touches nearly every aspect of our lives – making it essential to the economic, social, and ecological well-being of everyone, everywhere. Evaluated globally and by country, the Ocean Health Index presents 10 public goals that represent the wide range of benefits that a healthy ocean provides to people. Each country’s overall score is the average of its 10 goal scores. Overall scores and individual goal scores are directly comparable between all countries. All scores range from 0 to 100.

The OCB has developed a series of hands-on experiences to support the teaching of ocean acidification and meet national science education standards. Activities are as low-cost and adaptable as possible. Most of the materials required here can be found at grocery stores and pet stores. The labs comes with worksheets and post-lab questions, some of which were done at the July OA Workshop.

This website presents hands-on demonstrations and experiments done at the Ocean Acidification workshop, July 2012. The site also includes presentations by scientists and educators, useful links, and an ocean pledge that explains on a personal level what you can do to reduce CO2 emissions.

The hands-on activities will help demonstrate and explore the effects of increasing carbon dioxide on the acidity of the ocean and learn about impacts an acidic ocean has on marine organisms, the ocean food web, and humans. You will also investigate the causes for increased ocean acidity and learn about ways to minimize your impact.
