Alaska Sea Grant continues to work with school districts across the state to improve marine education taught to our K–12 students.
We collaborated with teachers in the Juneau, Cordova, Chugach, and Anchorage school districts over the last year to add 18 new marine education lesson plans. The plans align with Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and are available on our website. They are one outcome of our mini grants to 10 school districts over the last four years which funded professional-development workshops for teachers. These workshops bolstered the teachers’ use of Alaska Sea Grant educational resources as well as their skills in developing lesson plans that align with NGSS.
The lesson plans are searchable by grade level at the Alaska Seas and Watersheds Curriculum website.
