Sea Turtle Exploration Workshop


Sea Turtle Exploration Workshop

Saturday, March 14th, 2020 - 9 AM - 3:30 PM

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, March 14th, 2020 for a hands-on teacher workshop guiding you through our new curriculum and website. 

 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 bring a reusable water bottle and you may choose to also pack a waste-free lunch.  Our snack shop, Shark Bites will be opened and there are lunch options off-site. This workshop will count towards NC Environmental Education Certification (Criteria I) and consists of 6 contact hours that may count toward CEUs for teachers.

Help keep our seas plastic-free! Please bring a reusable water container, a refillable coffee cup, and a waste-free lunch!

The cost of this teacher workshop is $25. This fee includes a Behind the Scenes Tour and access to curriculum.  The Oak Island Beach Preservation Society will pay the registration fee for any formal or informal Brunswick County Educators.
