Winged Ambassadors

Winged Ambassadors is a five-lesson activity package that helps students to learn about seabirds, the ocean, and marine and land debris. Albatrosses traverse vast oceanic regions searching for floating food, often ingesting plastic trash and feeding it to their chicks. The five activities in this unit are inquiry-based science instruction aligned to grade 6-8 standards, with extensions for grades 9-12.

Each lesson includes a lesson plan with suggested discussion questions, ideas for differentiation, extensions, suggestions for videos, and Internet links. Also included are student worksheets and handouts, as well as other material for the teacher.

This session is part of a series of science and environmental education workshops. Participants who participate in 15 hours of science workshops can earn one unit of credit from Sonoma State University.
