I can explain what an estuary is where our estuary is located.
I can list different parts of an estuary and some creatures that are found in estuaries.
I talk about the importance of estuaries.
Make an offering of knowledge: ask class to share their knowledge concerning estuaries?
View the video. Questions you could ask – why do they say an estuary is from the top of the glacier to the bottom of the ocean? (Because they are all connected) What things does the video show as being part of an estuary? What else is part of an Estuary?
Review the Species Info sheets for the Lower Watershed
Invite Project Watershed to present the slideshow or go through the slideshow yourself.
Brainstorm ways humans interact with estuaries and how we can steward them. Education, recreation, logging, tourism, art, spiritualism, drive around them.
Project Watershed can present the slideshow to your class.
