Ocean Lesson Plans
Welcome to the Educators' Corner
The ocean provides the air we breathe, food we eat, and water we drink. Just as we need the ocean, the ocean needs each one of us.
Our Ocean Portal Educators’ Corner provides you with activities, lessons and educational resources to bring the ocean to life for your students.

We hope these resources, along with the rich experience of the Ocean Portal, will help you inspire the next generation of ocean stewards.
