Lake Michigan and the Humanities: Under- standing an Aquatic Enviornment

To develop in aquarium visitors an awareness of the values and ethics that are inherent in human responsibility for environmental balance and to provide other aquariums, museums and schools with a working model for humanities-based marine education. Self-guided tour will be designed with the goal of communicating the general components of any environmental decision—history, values, ethics, and scientific principles—through the consideration of a specific environmental issue, Lake Michigan. Materials for the tour will be written at the 5th grade level; 5th and 6th graders will participate in the tour program and will evaluate it.
