This is a really interesting lesson plan that focuses on the topic of invasive species and their impact on the coral reef environment. This lesson plan is a spring board for a number of other very useful and related topics centering around other ecosystems, robotics, symbiotic relationships and other types of invasive species. Students are asked to take notes while watching a ten minute video on YouTube called "Insight: Invasive Lionfish". Student may use their notes to complete the questions on the worksheet.
