Description:

In this activity, learners examine the properties of different seaweeds, investigate what happens when powdered seaweed (alginate) is added to water, and learn about food products made with seaweed. Instructions are provided for facilitating three stations at a table in an aquarium or museum, but the activities can be done anywhere. Background information is provided about seaweed and its use in foods, and learners realize how common it is (it's in toothpaste, ice cream, pudding, and even chocolate milk).
