SEA LIFE Educational Workshops

Complete your experience with one of our many educational workshops. Our workshops follow Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) according to each specific grade level. Workshops are held on the hour, every hour from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

 

*Please note that our workshop sessions can hold 40 students and are approximately 30-45 minutes in length depending on the workshops chosen.

Don't Be Crabby!

(Pre-K – 2nd Grade)

  • Students will investigate the adaptations and behavior of crustaceans (crabs) within an ecosystem with a focus on hermit crabs. Students will listen to a book about a hermit crab as a group, explore claw function, and examine real shells.
  • Next Generation Science Standards for Pre-K - 2nd Grade:
    • K-LS1-1, K-ESS2-2, K-ESS3-1, K-ESS3-3

Sandy Shells

(2nd – 5th Grade)

  • Sandy Shells workshop has students explore the adaptations of shell design and structure of mollusks. Students will rank and record different data on various seashells by working with a partner to describe characteristics of shells
  • Next Generation Science Standards for 2nd Grade (also K-2) and Grades 3rd - 5th:
    • 2-PS1-1, 3-LS4-2, 4-LS1-1

Magnificent Migration

(3rd – 5th Grade)

  • Students will take a journey through elasmobranch migration (shark and ray) while facing setbacks and advancements throughout their individual journey. Students embrace themselves acting as sharks or rays who discover challenges faced by migration such as storms, bioaccumulation, illness, predators, etc
  • Next Generation Science Standards for 3rd - 5th grade:
    • 3-LS4-3. 5-LS2-1

Diving Deep into the Food Chain

(6th – 8th Grade)

  • Students will dive deep into understanding the marine food chain of elasmobranchs (sharks and rays) within the marine ecosystem. Content area covered consists of science, environmental education, conservation, ecology, and bioaccumulation. Students will conduct a food chain activity as a group to better understand the transfer of energy.
  • Next Generation Science Standards for 6th - 8th Grade:
    • MS-LS1-5, MS-LS2-1, MS-LS2-3, MS-LS2-4, MS-ESS3-3

Marine Food Chain and Career Exploration

(9th-12th Grade)

  • Students will dive deep into understanding the marine food chain of elasmobranchs (sharks and rays) within the marine ecosystem. Students find out the consequences of bioaccumulation, biomagnification, and microplastics on marine life. Students will conduct a food chain activity and write a solution on how to limit microplastics. After exploring concepts from the marine food chain, students will be introduced to marine careers and how to currently get involved.
  • Next Generation Science Standards for 9th - 12th Grade:

    • HS-LS2-4
