National Ocean Service: Education

The Education section of the National Ocean Service (NOS) website offers informative materials from lesson plans to interactive activities "for educators, students, and anyone who wants to learn more about our ocean and coasts!" The resources are organized by audience, with buttons directing readers to materials "For Educators," "For Students," or "For Kids." K-12 instructors may wish to check out the variety of online learning modules on topics such as "Oysters in the Chesapeake," and "Sea Level Rise." Students can also "dive in" with the six tutorials that cover a range of marine science topics, from ocean currents to nonpoint source pollution. Each tutorial includes a lesson, broken into individual units that users can progress through in their own time, as well as a "Roadmap to Resources" related to the subject of that particular tutorial and a set of "Subject Review" questions. Those looking for a more interactive experience will delight in the many games and activities offered for kids, including a set of "Regional Activity Books" (Grades 3-5) geared toward particular coastal areas of the U.S., all downloadable in PDF format. The NOS is an office of the U.S. Department of Commerce National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (last featured in the 06-07-2019 Scout Report). The mission of the NOS is to "provide science-based solutions through collaborative partnerships to address evolving economic, environmental, and social pressures on our ocean and coasts."
