Innovating Science® - Ocean Acidification

Ocean Acidification

Product # IS9756

Changes to the carbon cycle and climate due to human activities have had detrimental effects on the environment. One example of this is known as ocean acidification, which is the changing of the ocean's chemistry due to increased carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and ocean. In this activity, students will learn about the carbon cycle and how it relates to ocean acidification. Through three different activities, students will investigate the cause of ocean acidification, and the effects it can have on the
ecosystem and marine life. Kit contains enough materials for 15 groups of students. Teacher's Manual and Student Study Guide Copymasters are included.
