Sea Turtle Exploration

The North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher presents Sea Turtle Exploration: a curriculum to help educators engage students in the fundamentals of STEAM through ready-to-use, standards based lesson plans and sea turtles. Join us on Saturday, February 7 for a hands-on teacher workshop guiding you through our new curriculum and website.
 In addition to the curriculum, you will learn about additional resources such as weekly blog posts will be made during the school year. Topics will include: species profiles, aquarium staff spotlights, behind the scenes videos, new lesson plans and more. Even follow the growth of Aquarium hatchling sea turtles by visiting the blog each week!

Aligned with the new Common Core standards, your class will be able to “adopt” a turtle and learn about its care and growth. By adopting our sea turtle you will receive weekly updates with information including the turtle’s current weight and length. Each class will also receive a certificate of participation.
By the end of the workshop, you will be familiar with the website and curriculum and how to implement the lessons in your own classroom. The workshop will include a behind the scenes tour to meet one of our sea turtles. Please pack a waste-free lunch as there will not be food available on site.

This workshop takes place on Saturday, February 7, 2015 from 9 AM - 4 PM.

Please bring a waste free lunch.

The cost of this teacher workshop is $25. This fee includes Aquarium admission, a Behind the Scenes Tour, and access to curriculum.
