Experience type: 
Virtual Field Trip
Program Description

The intertidal zone is a wonderful and extreme exvironment for those who call it home. 

Along the west coast of Canada, the intertidal zone is home to an incredible diversity of organisms, all competing for the same space! When the tide is out, we can give you a tour of this habitat and discuss the biotic and abiotic factors that will influence life within this extreme environment.

Big Ideas
  • Multicellular organisms have organ systems that enable them to survive and interact within their environment.
  • Multicellular organisms rely on internal systems to survive, reproduce, and interact with their environment.
  • Evolution by natural selection provides an explanation for the diversity and survival of living things.
  • Life processes are performed at the cellular level.
  • The biosphere, geosphere, hydrosphere, and atmosphere are interconnected, as matter cycles and energy flows through them.
