Flagler's Flippers Fins and Fun Facts- Middle School

from Dolphin Research Center

Program image

Students will participate in an interactive studio based program with Dolphin Research Center
Staff. Students will engage in some friendly competition for a game show to test their
knowledge of anatomy, physiology and adaptation. 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 studio based programs 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.
