Interdisciplinary learning with a local context.

Oceans for an engaging classroom experience.

Whatever subject you teach, we have resources and support to make sure you, and your students, will have a fantastic time exploring it through a new lens - the underwater world. 

We prepare lessons and workshops that work well in interdisciplinary contexts, plus help you teach what needs to be covered in your class. From math, through languages (we prepare plans in Spanish & Polish, too!), to classes teaching art, we work to involve students in meaningful projects.

Connecting students to their local 'ocean' and the world.

One of the best ways to learn about the ocean is hands-on - getting your feet wet. However, not all students have access to the ocean or a coastline.

We work with teachers to incorporate local contexts for global concepts. In practice, this means students can get more involved in their communities while developing skills. For example, in our class about mangroves, we encourage students to connect with their community to learn about nature.

Principle 1:

The Earth has one big ocean with many features.

The Ocean Literacy Principles for greater awareness.

We use outside guidelines and principles to provide students with the best experience possible.

One example is the Ocean Literacy Principles. Look around! The 7 principles lead to a deeper understanding of our planet & the ocean. These principles come from the Ocean Literacy Framework.

Principle 2:

The ocean and life in the ocean shape the features of Earth.

Principle 4:

The ocean made the Earth habitable.

Principle 3:

The ocean is a major influence on weather and climate.

Principle 6:

The ocean and humans are inextricably interconnected.

Principle 5:

The ocean supports a great diversity of life and ecosystems.

Principle 7:

The ocean is largely unexplored.
