Classroom Resources

To help students and teachers learn about sea turtles, why they are threatened, and how they can help, we have put together lesson plans, offer in-class and online presentations, and provide a wide range of environmental education resources.

Lesson Plans

Our curriculum was developed by an experienced teacher to engage students from grades 6 - 12 on various subjects related to sea turtles. These creatures can teach students a variety of subjects, including biology, geography, world cultures, and more. Lessons include Introduction to Sea Turtles, Food Webs, and Threats to Sea Turtles.
