Education: Marine Debris Resources (Grades: K-8)

1 Comment

By: Leah Henry

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.

We have since authored an award winning Plastic and Recycling Awareness Curriculum which was written to match the latest National Standards for science. Check it out and let us know what you think:

    We would love to talk to you about this in more detail. We will actually be in DC in late Sept, maybe we could set up a meeting.
