Coral Reef Web of Life Activity:
A lesson plan designed to accompany
Here Is the Coral Reef
Through this activity, children will enact the coral reef ecosystem by passing a ball of yarn to and from each other to represent the different relationships between the animals and elements represented in Here Is the Coral Reef. The “web of life” created by the children will end up looking like the web on the front cover of this curriculum. Each child wears a badge of an animal or element (parrotfish, wrasse, sea, anemone,shark, cod, eel, coral, clownfish, remora) that make up the coral reef ecosystem.
