Shark Week 2016
It's that time of year, again! Discovery's Shark Week is a huge hook for students, so be sure to take advantage of all that cold-blooded charisma! (Or, in the case of the Laminids, warm-bodied charisma.) Find schedules, lesson plans, shark cams, and more on the official website.

AAAS Marine Sanctuaries
In this lesson, students learn about the national marine sanctuaries found in the Pacific and Atlantic oceans and off the coast of American Samoa. After being introduced to the marine sanctuaries as a class, students will work in small groups to develop posters that highlight key ideas in the benchmarks in the context of the individual marine sanctuaries.
