Marine Education Trust Resources
The Marine Education Trust has produced a new education pack called Explore the Sea, which is a series of resources for young people that is intended to be very practical and hands-on while not requiring a great deal of additional equipment or materials. It’s not meant to be a course, just ideas that can be mixed, matched and adapted depending on what individual organisations need at the time.
Explore the Sea is a resource pack containing a series of practical activities to teach young people about the different habitats, marine life and environmental pressures affecting tropical coral reef ecosystems. It is arranged in seven topic areas that cover five particular ecosystems (reefs and lagoons, sandy beaches, rocky shores, mangroves and the open ocean) as well as introducing general ecological concepts and highlighting important conservation concerns.
The pack contains Educators’ Notes, which provide background information about the different subject areas, and Student Sheets, which provide instructions for the activities. The activites range from art and science to role plays, and are designed to be an ideas base rather than a comprehensive ecology course to follow. They are intended to be flexible – an activity suggested for one topic can easily be adapted for another – and should be appropriate for formal or informal education settings.
