Students’ age range: 12-14
Main subject: Language arts and literature
Topic: Persuasive Writing: Saving the Conch
 
Description: *Context* Conch in The Bahamas is slowly becoming endangered due to overfishing and poor regulation of fishing laws. The conch aerates sand, allowing smaller animals to live underwater, provides a source of food for larger organisms, appears on The Bahamas' Coat of Arms and is part of the cultural diet of Bahamians as an internationally acclaimed delicacy. Furthermore, conch shells are used to create jewelry and craft items, and are ground up for calcium carbonate and used in natural supplements. When conch is endangered so is the livelihood of many Bahamians. (lesson can be adapted for any culturally appropriate animal or organism).
