Tides

Unit 6: Oceanography
Lesson 1 of 6

Objective: SWBAT describe the relationship between the moon, the Earth, and gravity, as it relates to the formation of tides, and describe what causes ocean tides, tidal cycles, and how they change the water level along coastal areas.

Big Idea: Students never think about the moon causing the motion in the ocean. Learn how this celestial body contributes to the ocean's dynamic water levels.
