Product Description

Looking for a unique way to teach your students about the effects of El Niño ⛵? This is one of my favorite lessons of the year! This is a higher-order thinking lesson, with real-world data, and is one of my most engaging lessons of the school year!
-----------------------------------------------------
What is it?
⭐You share the phenomenon of tropical fishing off the coast of California, something that only happens when the warm ocean water moves from Mexico northward (El Niño).
⭐Your students analyze fishing data from 2014, 2015, and 2016 in order to determine which was an El Niño Year. It's a fantastic way to use BIOLOGICAL data to determine CLIMATE data ✅
⭐To verify their answers, students analyze sea surface temperature maps for each year
-----------------------------------------------------
Who can use it?
★Earth Science Teachers: To teach about the effects of an El Niño year, or about short term climate change
★Biology Teachers: To teach an example of how the environment affects temporary migration of tropical fish
★Environmental Science Teachers: To teach about the relationship between abiotic and biotic factors
★Teachers of Advanced or Gifted and Talented Students: As a challenging, phenomenon-based activity
