Students focus on the influences of tides on the rocky shore, and the animals that survive in the harsh conditions of the tidepool habitat. They handle live invertebrates and examine how they are adapted to life in the rocky intertidal.
Students discover what all mammals have in common, and how marine mammals are uniquely suited to surviving in aquatic environments. They explore artifacts and discuss the feeding and survival strategies of different types of mammals.
