Welcome parents and students! This page is designed to give you information for the Marine Science class. I will be updating it often with activities we are doing in class, as well as, homework assignments. Click the Marine Science Assignments link on the right to see what we are doing in class.
SUPPIES NEEDED FOR MARINE SCIENCE CLASS
ALL students will need:
5 subject spiral bound notebook
To help organize the notebook I have provided on each table glue, scissors, and rulers. However, if a student would like to use another adhesive material (ie. double stick tape, staples, glue stick) they need to have those supplies with them daily.
The Interactive notebook will be used as an organizational and study tool throughout the year. Students will need to keep the notebook up to date as it will be collected for a grade periodically.
girls should also bring:
box of tissues
guys should also bring:
box of colored pencils

Field trips: Are an important part of the Marine Science class experience. All trips are mandatory, and cost $5. I will need at least 2 chaperones for each field trip. If you would like to chaperone please contact me ASAP.
Field Trip # 1 Water Quality and Sand Dune Study
this must be completed prior to chaperoning
Aquarium maintenance: All students will be responsible for taking care of a salt water aquarium while in Marine Science. The students will be given instructions on how to care for the tank within the first few weeks of school. Any donations to help maintain the tanks are gladly accepted.
Items needed: dechlorinator
saltwater fish food
filter replacement cartridges
