Description:

From PBS, this website explores the life and beauty of Palau, an archipelago of 343 islands in the tropical Pacific. The site's Aquatic Classroom section features a number of hands-on lessons developed primarily for middle school students and designed to accompany the PBS _Palau, Paradise of the Pacific_ program. Lesson titles include Home Improvement: Building My Own Coral; Fast Food, the Fish Way; Reef; and Symbiosis: I'll Help You if You Help Me. Lesson plans contain objectives, background information, materials needed, evaluation, national science standards, and more. The site also features good-quality photos and brief profiles for Sea Cucumbers, Parrotfish, Jellyfish, and Sharks -- to name just a few.
