It’s Teacher Appreciation Day, so we in the NOAA Marine Debris Program would like to give a great big thank you to all teachers, especially those who spend time talking about marine debris in their classrooms.
Here are some tools to help teachers with marine debris lessons: We offer free downloadable activities and curriculum on our website, we fund and support marine debris prevention through education and outreach projects through regional partnership grants, and we host an annual marine debris art contest to engage students and empower their communities in taking steps to “Keep the Sea Free of Debris!” Stay tuned for this year’s contest, opening in the fall.
Thank you teachers and educators – both formal and informal. We appreciate all that you do to keep our students informed and our environment clean.
