– an ocean literacy initiative –
We are creating our own ocean literacy resources for school education! These resources will be focussed on primary school education and will be linked to the v9.0 Australian Curriculum. The resources will be inquiry-based units targeted to Foundation – Year 6. As an added bonus, we have incorporated the ocean literacy principles!
Soon, we will be looking for schools to trial our resources so we can evaluate their impact on improving ocean literacy. If this is something you or your school would be interested in, please contact us.
Coastcare Victoria Schools Kit
Coastcare Victoria have recently released educational resources about the coastal and marine environments of Victoria. There are 5 lessons – spanning from seaweed solutions to edible urchins. Each lesson has a short video, teacher guide and linked worksheets. They are targeted for Grades 5 – 8. And the best news? They are FREE! Click the button below.
You may recognise a few Deakin members in the kit!
Over and Under the Waves
– A teachers booklet for ocean literacy –
As part of Cátia’s PhD project she has produced a wonderful teacher resource to incorporate ocean literacy into the classroom through the use of picture books. This guide includes background information, useful links and activity guides to create an interactive and fun unit focussed on the ocean!
We will have an e-book available here to download late 2022.
