Poetry in Motion

from Dolphin Research Center

Program image

Students will participate in an interactive studio based program with Dolphin Research Center Staff to learn about the different principles and tools used in developing poetry. Students will examine different forms of poetry featuring members of the Dolphin Research Center. At the end, students have the opportunity to ask a dolphin expert questions about dolphins while also learning how they can lessen their impact on the marine environment. All video conferences include a live instructor interaction with video clips from all around our beautiful Florida Keys facility.

Ocean Literacy Principles
5A Ocean life ranges in size from the smallest living things, microbes, to the largest animal on Earth, blue whales.
5D Ocean biology provides many unique examples of life cycles, adaptations, and important relationships among organisms (symbiosis, predator-prey dynamics, and energy transfer) that do not occur on land.
6D Humans affect the ocean in a variety of ways. Laws, regulations, and resource management affect what is taken out and put into the ocean. Human development and activity leads to pollution (point source, nonpoint source, and noise pollution), changes to ocean chemistry (ocean acidification), and physical modifications (changes to beaches, shores, and rivers). In addition, humans have removed most of the large vertebrates from the ocean.
6G Everyone is responsible for caring for the ocean. The ocean sustains life on Earth and humans must live in ways that sustain the ocean. Individual and collective actions are needed to effectively manage ocean resources for all.
