Sea Turtle Fates: Students draw an egg from the sea turtle nest and open to find their fate. Some will die of natural causes like being eaten, but some will suffer man-made fates like being confused by artificial lights when they hatch. Students then discuss our impact on sea turtles specifically and wildlife as a whole. Simple, cheap and engaging. Good for environmental lessons, ocean units or Endangered species lessons.
