The Problem

Students in my class were horrified about news of marine wildlife washing up dead on the shores of Florida and wanted to find out what was going on and what they could do to help. When they learned that the Texas coast was periodically affected by red tide as well, they were on a mission to raise awareness.

Our Plan

A group of students researched potential causes of red tide and were shocked to discover that runoff from fertilizers might contribute to increased and more severe red tides, a naturally occurring phenomena. They decided to create a YouTube video to educate other students as well as present to our second graders.
