Investigating Coastline Erosion Protection: Session 2

This lesson can be completed in two 45-minute sessions

In this lesson plan, students look at different ways to protect coastlines. Students first use an online tool to find historic tide data in a selected coastal location: The Gulf Coast of the United States. Then students use a hands-on model to explore the use of different materials in protecting coastlines. As they progress, students learn how and why oyster reefs are being used to protect the coastline of the Gulf of Mexico. In this STEM lesson, students will get the opportunity to practice and learn across a wide range of disciplines.
