Student Activity - Build a marine food web - In this activity, students build their own food web using images of organisms from the marine ecosystem. This activity can be done indoors on paper or outdoors on a tarmac surface using chalk.
Student Activity - Constructing food webs - In this activity, students construct a food web using string and pictures. Their web will show the network of species in the ecosystem that is supported by honeydew produced by scale insects.
STUDENT ACTIVITY - Fossil correlation - In this activity, students date fossils from one site by matching them to fossils already dated somewhere else. They use real data from Mangahouanga, made famous by paleontologist Joan Wiffen.
Student Activity - Crystal systems - In this activity, students investigate crystal shapes and crystal systems. Traditional ceramics are clay-based – clays have a mineral composition and minerals have a crystalline structure.
