Barrier Islands Educator’s Guide


The Barrier Island Curriculum is part of the Educator’s Guide and introduces middle school and high school students to how barrier islands protect coastal Louisiana from the winds and waves of storms. Students get to make predictions of how barrier islands affect wave action during a simulated storm. These five lessons teach middle school and high school students about Barrier Island geomorphology, dynamics, ecology and history.
