Vignette: Using Real-Time Tide Data

Charting course lesson plan photo of project

 

I did not make any special adaptations to this lesson, however breaking the students into pairs who researched their own shipwreck worked fairly well.Before tackling the lesson, I would recommend showing a video on shipwreck excavation. This would help point the students in the right direction when it comes to them understanding what tools/type of crew they need for recovery. I would also go through the lesson in detail before presenting it in a classroom. There are a lot of details to cover. After the class completed the lesson, we made a crosscurricular connection to the history of shipwrecks in each of the five national marine sanctuaries.
