Product Description

The fourth in our Habitat series, Habitats: Life in the Coral Reef – Biscayne National Park is now available. This unit contains information specific to the coral reef habitat and connects fun art lessons and science together while bringing Biscayne National Park to your classroom.

The chain of narrow islands that make up the Biscayne's Keys divide the Biscayne Bay from the Atlantic Ocean. Here the coral limestone faces outward toward the sea and the coral reef exists. It is a destination your students will love to learn about while gaining an understanding of a coral reef habitat.
