(In the classroom)
Students working in groups will create their own marine food web for two representative Mediterranean marine ecosystems. The Posidonia oceanica sea grass  medows and Gorgonian gardens, or deep-sea sponge fields


Each group will be responsible for gathering information and photos or videos about the two different habitats and the organisms that live in them


Students, in pairs, use the school computer lab and/or provided Internet resources to research their organism and complete their essay


Students create posters or ppt presentations by using various multimedia to present their results
