Online Resource – Coral Bleaching Curriculum

University of Hawaii Sea Grant brought together students, teachers, and researchers to develop a new curriculum, “The Case of the Sick Coral.”  Recently published in the National Marine Educators Association’s journal Current, it guides high school students in developing and testing hypotheses about the differential susceptibility of corals to bleaching.  Note:  no coral is harmed in this activity — only cauliflower and broccoli!
