Science: Saving Crystal River
This is a self-paced online course.



In this course, you will experience a PBS module that can be used by students: Students explore the effects that an invasive species can have on the environment. In this interactive lesson, students learn how Lyngbya, a destructive form of algae, is creating environmental problems for the plants and wildlife in the Crystal River and Kings Bay areas of West Central Florida. They also examine methods being used to restore and maintain these important habitats. As a final assignment, students gather information from the lesson’s readings, activities, and video segments from WEDU Quest to complete a final writing assignment.

You will complete the module as if you were a student, explore support materials that are associated with the interactive module, identify the TEKS that are associated with this resource, search for other PBS resources that could support your teaching, and complete a short reflection. Completion of these tasks will earn you 3 hours of CPE credit.

Course credit will be given after the course closes on June 30th. This course is designed for middle school, Environmental Science, and Aquatic Science teachers that teach about biodiversity and water issues.
