Elkhorn Slough Education: Teacher Resources
- Estuaries 101 is a curriculum that includes student activities, professional development and training using SWMP data. The first modules developed are for grade levels 9-12 and are designed to help teachers and students use real scientific data to explore estuaries and understand the connection between humans and estuaries. A middle school module is planned to launch in the fall of 2011.
- Estuaries: Where Rivers Meet the Sea. This resource helps educators bring the beauty and the importance of estuaries into classrooms and educational programs. It provides an avenue for students and teachers to learn more about estuaries and to explore NOAA's "living laboratories" - the National Estuarine Research Reserves. Look for the new middle school curriculum to launch in the spring of 2012. http://estuaries.noaa.gov
