Our Coral Reefs lesson plan introduces students to coral reefs and coral reef biomes. The three main types of coral reefs are defined in the lesson, which emphasizes that coral reefs are living organisms. The animals and plants that live on and around coral reefs are also discussed, along with the importance of coral reefs for various ecosystems. During this lesson, students are asked to use their creativity and collaboration skills to design and create a poster advocating for the protection of coral reefs with a partner, using the lesson material to provide facts and arguments; they then present their poster to the class, strengthening their presentation and public speaking skills. Students are also asked to match terms with their definitions, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson vocabulary.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define coral reef, identify coral reefs, and list characteristics of coral reefs.
