About This Lesson

Resource: Coral in the hot seat

Description

Media (6 min)Join us as we set out to take the temperature of a reef, to see how warming waters might be impacting life in the heart of the Coral Triangle.

  • See the media: Ocean School makes media/activity combinations. Each piece of media is linked to an activity. You can access this video by visiting the Ocean School website or by visiting the direct link here. If you like this media, you can see all of the available resources in the Ocean School Resource Catalogue. Everything in Ocean School is provided free to the public.

Activity (60 mins): Interpret coral bleaching data - Students are challenged to read and interpret a graph. They are asked to start by describing what they notice, what they are wondering about, and finally what they think the graph is all about!

  • Want another format? We offer a Google Slides version of the activity, a Microsoft Powerpoint version of the activity, and a PDF version of the activity on the Ocean School website.
