Abstract:Natural areas like Hanauma Bay provide a captivating setting
for place-based and culture-based science lessons. When students visit
Hanauma Bay, they have limited time to learn about the bay during their
field visit. To enhance the field experiences of students, an online pre-fieldtrip
lesson was developed for teachers to use to prepare their 3rd-5th
grade students for a Hanauma Bay field visit. The lesson was designed to
teach concepts of Hawaiian kapu (prohibitions or laws) as they relate to
conservation and to Hawaiian reef fish biology. The lesson was developed
using learning standards for the relevant grade levels and the ADDIE
method of instructional design. 3rd-5th grade teachers and informal
educators who have used Hanauma Bay as an educational site evaluated
the instructional design via an anonymous online survey. Responses were
received from 12 participants. Descriptive statistics were used to examine
the responses and themes were derived from open-ended comments.
Results indicated teachers perceived the lesson was engaging, aligned with
class learning objectives, grade level appropriate, and would help to
prepare students for a visit to Hanauma Bay. The teachers particularly
valued the integration of science and Hawaiian culture and the connections
made between kapu and fish life cycles.
