New competencies targeted
Students will be able to :
- list abiotic and biotic factors of a marine ecosystems
- identify and describe abiotic factors and physical processes that impact marine ecosystems
- Investigate the importance of abiotic factors and physical processes within Mediterranean ecosystems.
- Describe and identify two examples of Mediterranean marine ecosystems
- Discover the effects of abiotic factors on aquatic/marine ecosystems
- List ways humans interact with and impact marine ecosystems
- Provide examples of abiotic and biotic factors of different marine Mediterranean habitats
Appropriate a computer work environment : adopt a responsible attitude, create, produce, process, use data, information research and obtain documentation, communicate.
The educator should introduce to the students a vocabulary that includes elements such as: ecosystems, abiotic factors, biotic factors, habitats, food chain, food web
(in the classroom or ICT lab):
Students will divide in small groups and will search in internet or other resources (books, illustrations, guides, video galleries etc.) to provide examples of abiotic and biotic factors of different marine ecosystems in Mediterranean Sea. (Students could chose examples from different countries or from their native country and present at least 5 examples)
Students have to find an attractive way to present and share their examples /information with the rest of the classroom. They can write a play and play it in front of all, they can write a poem-haiku or they can write a story with fantastic characters or finally they can create a ppt or poster and present it in the class
Students and educators discuss with an expert (e.g. marine researcher from HCMR, or from another institute-university through skype connection) about their conclusions for the effects of abiotic factors on marine ecosystems and the human's interaction and impact to marine ecosystems
Students exhibit their posters/poems, or present their ppt/ or their story/fiction, or play their play to the rest of the school community and their parents and inform them about the ways that humans interact with the marine habitats in Mediterranean Basin.
