Extremely satisfied how this video fit into our impact of humans on our environment unit.
Perfect timing! I received this just as I was going through our ocean's unit. It offered a great opportunity to see first-hand the issues of overfishing.
This was a perfect end of the year movie to watch to keep the students engaged! It was also great to tie in my personal experiences in visiting New Zealand a few years ago. This is definitely a video I will show year after year.
I use this video each year and share it with other teachers in my STEM courses and instruction.
This video was used to wrap up an ecosystem unit in 8th grade and will be referenced for a later unit on human impact. Students learned how biological or physical changes in an ecosystem affect populations and considered solutions to maintain an ecosystem (NGSS). 'SOS' is an excellent example of a real-world ocean ecosystem issue, and what steps were taken to turn it around, thus protecting the ecosystem and supporting the local and world economy.
This video really helped my students understand the reason why we have limits on fishing and hunting. I used it along with an activity that demonstrates what was happening to wildlife populations before regulations and what is happening now.
