Creating a Marine Protected Area

Students demonstrate their knowledge of marine protected areas by creating point-of-view persuasive essays that focus on the class marine environment model. Students may also participate in a mock neighborhood board meeting where they share their points of view in oral presentations. From these essays, students will be able to design an MPA for the marine environments they created in Lesson 1.
