Keeping in mind that many of the activities and lessons for younger students need to be flexible and adaptable, we have a wide array of resources specific to Kindergarten age through the 8th grade level.
For the younger crowd there are: crafts, word finds & scrambles, a coloring book, and ‘Understanding Marine Debris: Games & Activities for Kids of All Ages.’
For the more advanced students, we have: educator guides, web-based curricula, and topic-based lessons with direct marine debris prevention actions and pledges designed in collaboration with educators, industry, universities, and non-governmental organizations.
