Teacher’s Guide. We begin with an overview of the northwest’s rocky shores, discovering how they were built and what they’re made of. We learn what causes the tides that pull the waters back to reveal marine animals and plants, leaving them high and dry for long periods. The conditions that make our rocky shores so rich with life are examined. The four basic levels of the "intertidal condominium" are described, noting what types of creatures are able to live comfortably in each horizontal zone. Then we get to know the various animals groups seen on Pacific rocky shores, including sponges, sea anemones, tube worms, true crabs, hermit crabs, burrowing shrimp, nudibranchs, shelled snails, sea stars, sea urchins, sea cucumbers, and tiny fish surviving in tide pools. This production was filmed mostly along the Pacific coast from British Columbia to California, on rocky shores laid bare by low tide.">
