Lesson Plan-Causes and consequences of harmfulalgal blooms (HABs)SummaryStudents will study the causes and consequences of harmful algal blooms (HABs) by learningabout nutrient cycles of carbon, nitrogen, and phosphorous that contribute to phytoplanktongrowth through eutrophication.They will learn about the relative size and different types ofplankton, design their own plankton, and create a class plankton food web for the Gulf of Maineor their local area.Next, they will discover the human impacts on the propagation of HABsthrough point and non-point agricultural, industrial, and urban human contributions.They willalso discuss the effects of HABs on marine wildlife and humans.Students will use data collectedfrom various research vessels and attempt to describe the relationship between temperature andchlorophyll A concentration. As a final project, they will create either a Map Journal or anInfographic to illustrate what they have learned in an electronic, graphic medium.In addition,the teacher will select from a variety of short-write formats for students to complete anddemonstrate their comprehension as daily exit passes.Key ConceptsCarbon is cycled through the atmosphere and ocean and stored in various reservoirs for varyingperiods of timePlankton are microscopic plants and animals that live in the ocean and cannot swim against majorcurrentsPhytoplankton need sunlight and nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorous to make organicmoleculesEutrophication contributes to increased phytoplankton populationsHarmful Algal blooms (HABs) are occurring more frequently and in areas that did not historicallyexperience HABsNot all algal blooms are harmful, they can be Beneficial Algal Blooms (BABs), which providerich nutrients for zooplankton and marine lifeObjectivesIdentifydifferent plankton types, whether they are harmful or beneficial, and the effects that theyhave on the ecosystemAnalyze real data setss to determine if there is a relationship between temperature andchlorophyll A production,Create a modelof how carbon cycles through the atmosphere and oceansDemonstratean understanding of the sources and cycles of nutrients important to phytoplanktoneutrophicationCommunicatethe difference between Harmful and Beneficial Algal Blooms (HABs and BABs)
