This Science lesson is suitable for lower secondary school and aims at improving awareness on vulnerable ecosystems, such as a coral reef. This lesson could be used to introduce definitions of ecosystem, biodiversity and fossil, underline the strong relationship between ecology and geology, and the complexity of environmental protection. Students will learn how the ecologist works in natural environment carrying out a “virtual” transept on a coral reef. Moreover, the activity will raise awareness on coral reef protection and encourage students to assume sustainable habits. Finally, students will be involved in designing an environmental campaign, using Minecraft and/or a Flipgrid, and at the end, students will be awarded as supporters of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The aim of Teresita’s learning scenario is to raise awareness about how climate change affects ecosystems, in particular, coral reefs, and what we can do to reduce human impact on ecosystems.
