Understanding Ocean Acidification

Type of Resource



This series of five activities about ocean acidification incorporates real data from NOAA. The activities are organized as a pathway, with five levels increasing in sophistication, and different data-based inquiry activities.

Performance Expectations

HS-PS1-6   Refine the design of a chemical system by specifying a change in conditions that would produce increased amounts of products at equilibrium.

HS-LS2-4   Use mathematical representations to support claims for the cycling of matter and flow of energy among organisms in an ecosystem

HS-ESS3-6   Use a computational representation to illustrate the relationships among Earth systems and how those relationships are being modified due to human activity.
