Jeopardy!

Today in ASAP we looked at a picture of the baby kelp we are growing at Ponce’s, read a book called Aquaculture for ME, and played Aquaculture Jeopardy!  We wrapped up by writing a photo journal entry.  Please enjoy!

 

This is a picture of our baby kelp. We talked about the kelp using as many adjectives as we could.  Some of the adjectives were: greenish/brown, tiny, cute, slimy, wet, cold, and hairy/mossy.

We read a book called Aquaculture for ME (PDF of book available here: http://teachmefoodandfarms.org/wp/wp-content/uploads/Aquaculture-for-ME.pdf).  We talked about the book and asked questions.

Gretchen came to ASAP.  She is from the University of New England.  She is studying aquaculture.  She answered some questions about her work.  Some of the questions she answered were:

What does her lab look like?

How do they keep the water cold there?

How do they reproduce more baby kelp?

Some of the questions were:

What do we call shellfish with two shells?  (Bivalves)

What are baby seaweed called?  (Spores)  What about baby shellfish?  (Larvae or seed)

How many acres are used for finfish aquaculture in the state of Maine?  (665)  Seaweed aquaculture?  (30)  Shellfish aquaculture? (577)

 

We could use the books Aquaculture for ME and the Aquaculture for ME Activity Book to help us find the answers.

 

Team 1 won.  It was a comeback.  At the end we shook hands.
