Back to School: An Educator’s Guide to Marine Debris

1 Comment

In an effort to bring students new science, technology, engineering, and mathematics-based marine debris lessons, we present An Educator’s Guide to Marine Debris. In this guide, the NOAA Marine Debris Program and the North American Marine Environment Protection Association designed a variety of lessons and many fun facts to use with students.

In ‘It’s All Downstream From Here…’ students are asked to collect, sort, and analyze classroom trash and make inferences about the sources and solutions. Understanding the effects of marine debris and creating a plan to take personal responsibility is one of many beneficial outcomes of this guide.

You can download the guide from our website and start a conversation with your students about science, marine debris, and environmental stewardship.

The NOAA Marine Debris Program envisions the global ocean and its coasts, users, and inhabitants free from the impacts of marine debris. Our mission is to investigate and solve the problems that stem from marine debris, in order to protect and conserve our nation's marine environment, natural resources, industries, economy, and people.
