Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Acid Alert! The Effects of Climate Change on Ocean Ecology - Section 3: The Classroom Flow: Wrap Up


I don't think I truly understood the impact of this lesson until I read the student reflections in their written unit personal reflections. Students shared that they loved the ocean theme, that the slides about ocean acidification were interesting and informative, and that the lab simulation itself gave them a clearer picture into the work of scientists in ways that stimulated their curiosity. Check out my short video for more on this topic.


I envision coming up with a simple acid based lab for students to run in class themselves after participating in the online virtual lab. I'd love to hear your thoughts and suggestions for ways to extend and deepen student learning after this activity!

Acid Alert! The Effects of Climate Change on Ocean Ecology

Unit 3: Unit 3: Basic Chemistry in Biology
Lesson 6 of 12

Objective: Students will be able to utilize data from an online lab simulation to describe the basic climate change chemical reactions that impact ocean ecology.

Big Idea: How does climate change affect ocean ecology? Get your students thinking about the wide ranging effects of climate change through this online lab simulation.
