• Measurement -- Volume and Capacity: Introduction
This webquest is set up to review the mathematical concepts of measurement and conversion with both the customary and the metric systems. It is my goal for these students to connect what they know about measurements to relationships they must use in science. My students should finish this quest with a better understanding of the interconnectedness of volume and capacity. Introduction Each student will have received 70 % or better on the pretest before beginning this quest. Those who need to will be getting some extra review before starting the quest.    As you will be using measurements in both math and science with different processes, it is important that you  have mastered skills in the measurement area.
• NOAA Education Resources: Ocean and Coasts Theme Homepage
The ocean covers 71 percent of the Earth's surface and contains 97 percent of the planet's water, yet more than 95 percent of the underwater world remains unexplored. The ocean and large inland lakes play an integral role in many of the Earth's systems including climate and weather. More than 50% of all species on Earth are found under the ocean and the ocean helps sustain human life above the water by providing 20 percent of the animal protein and five percent of the total protein in the human diet. In the US alone, there are over 95,000 miles of shoreline. More than half of the US population lives within 50 miles of the coast in the narrow area of land known as the "coastal zone."
