Nemo's Escape Plan

By Rita Barrera

This quest is a great way to introduce middle school science students to the practices of making observations, asking questions, research, collecting evidence, citing sources, and presenting ideas. Nemo's Escape Plan uses clips from Disney's Finding Nemo as a phenomenon to engage students in investigating whether or not Nemo's orginal plan would work under real-world circumstances and to devise an alter plan supported by what they have learned. Where needed, the tasks also include online resource links to clown fish habits and Australian wastewater treatment facilities.
