Vignette: Salinity and Tides
My students had no troubles finding the needed information and were able to draw the intended conclusions quickly. This activity suited my research students very well as they are accustom to using on-line resources. We made no important modifications to the activity.
A cross-curricular tie could be make to social studies of the culture of people who live in tidal communities. The study could explore how the lives and activities of these people are centered around the rise and fall of the tides.
