Description:

Introducing this comprehensive Oceans and Coastal Processes Unit, a two-day, no-prep resource designed to engage students in an exploration of the fundamental mechanisms shaping our oceans and shorelines. Throughout this high-quality unit, students delve into the essential question: “What are the mechanisms that impact our oceans and shorelines?”

 

In this dynamic unit, students learn about the origins and characteristics of our oceans. They unravel the mystery of why oceans are inherently salty, explore the intricate circulation patterns of ocean water, and gain insights into the formation of our vast oceanic landscapes. The unit provides an immersive learning experience, guiding students to interpret global currents using the Surface Ocean Currents map, thereby enhancing their comprehension of the profound interplay between oceanic forces and surrounding landmasses.

 

As students progress through the Oceans and Coastal Processes Unit, they encounter a rich vocabulary that deepens their understanding of marine dynamics. Key terms such as the Coriolis Effect, ocean currents, El Niño, longshore drift, sandbars, spits, barrier islands, and headlands are introduced, empowering students with the language necessary to articulate their newfound knowledge. By the end of this unit, students will have acquired a holistic understanding of the intricate relationships between oceans, coastal processes, and the dynamic forces that shape our planet’s vital water systems.
