"The lesson plan page provides engaging activities for elementary and middle school students in topics such as physical oceanography, ocean organisms and their interactions, and human impact on the ocean. Thorough background information provided for teachers in each lesson plan, along with recommendations for making the activities work with ideal materials as well as substitutions if those items aren't available. Extension activities are provided for most lessons, too. Great site! "
