Coral Reefs

Finishing this topic; we have covered:

Week One: A Close Look at Coral Skeletons and Coral Symbiosis. (We built an edible coral polyp with bananas, sprinkles, candy "vines" and crackers - don't worry... it wasn't actually eaten.)

Week Two: Coral Polyp Reproduction - Building a Coral Colony, Coral Polyp Reproduction, and "Where In the World is Coral," a look at continents and oceans, global cold currents, ocean depth and light requirements, and rivers/sedimentation and salinity.

Week Three: The ecosystem of Coral Reefs (animals that live on coral reefs) and the fragility of coral reefs (what threatens them: human, animal, environmental).

Great kids!
