Description:

In this outdoor, ocean-side activity, learners investigate the distribution of organisms in the upper region of the intertidal zone. Many coastal animals survive long exposures to air, high temperatures, and wave shocks as the tides rise and fall. Working in teams, learners observe animals and plants at low tide to discover the many ways organisms have adapted for survival at the collision of earth and sea.
