Beach Habitat Scene of the Crime

Students will first be introduced to the concept of an ecosystem and a habitat and the differences between them. Students study the kinds of organisms that live on their local beaches or coastal areas, and describe how they fit into an ecosystem. Students research an organism and its habitat, and then place a drawing of that organism on a cross section of the beach in the appropriate habitat. Students will then be introduced to Claude the Crab and a pollution problem.
