What Makes a Healthy Ecosystem

Through a video, the Internet, and the creation of a brainstorming web, students are introduced to marine ecosystems. By the end of this lesson students will be able to draw a healthy marine ecosystem with description of a threatened, protected, or endangered animal and explain why its habitat is important. The drawing will also include a description of the effects of natural events like storms, wind, waves, and tsunamis on these ecosystems.
