Resource Description

Attitudes towards dolphins in captivity

The learning sequence for this activity begins with designing an experiment to test adults’ attitudes towards dolphin captivity and swimming with captive dolphins programs. Once planned, students collectively design a short, online, quantitative questionnaire that is emailed to parents/guardians for completion. Results, some of which are presented in graph form, are analysed with patterns and anomalies identified. Students communicate the results and their analysis to interviewees in the form of a short report.
