This product is a color-by-number activity that allows students to complete statements and answer questions about the ecosystems and the coral reef. And YES- even secondary students love to color!
There are 12 statements/questions that need to be completed/answered with the correct term. Each answer choice corresponds to a different color. If all of the correct answer choices are chosen, then their final picture will be colored correctly to reflect complete mastery of the content.
I've also included an optional reading passage for students that discusses coral reefs. This passage could be used as a way to differentiate for different leveled learners, or you could use it for students who are just getting exposed to the content.
If you choose not to use the optional reading passage, then students should be familiar with the following terms and ideas in order to be successful with this activity:
•ocean depths determine the amount of light that reaches organisms beneath the surface
•sea anemones provide shelter and protection
•benefits of coral reefs to shorelines and humans
This could be used as a quick assessment, a homework assignment, additional practice, extra credit, or for early finishers. These are also great for days when you have to be out of the classroom - a sub can easily take over this lesson!
