This problem-based learning (PBL) module prompts students to address coral reef destruction and think about biodiversity worldwide. Students identify possible sources of coral reef destruction, examine conflicting evidence, evaluate possible courses of action, and make recommendations. As they do this, students look at man's impact on the global environment. Two versions of the PBL module are provided. ... Full description.

In this activity, student teams identify the locations of coral reefs around the world, examine infrared satellite images of the Earth, and research the impacts that are threatening the survival of coral reefs. Each team creates a short oral presentation describing the coral reef they have researched. Students then plot on a composite map the locations where coral bleaching is occurring. Student worksheets, ... Full description.

This activity is about climate change impacts on coral reefs, specifically coral bleaching. Using ReefBase - an online GIS for coral reefs - learners will access data on selected coral reefs and manipulate the data to characterize these reefs. They will then be able to apply their understanding of reef composition to identify the location and conditions necessary to sustain the coral reef ecosystem ... Full description.
