This website provides teachers
with all the necessary resources to carry out the activities developed
by COASTeam Aquatic Workshops. To access the information for a specific
grade level, use the menu above and select the desired grade. The
Aquatic Workshops activities range from Kindergarten to Fifth Grade.
After selecting the desired grade level, a new window will open
with links to all of the activities. The activities are separated
into "Classroom Activities", "South Carolina Aquarium
Activities", and "Field Trip Activities". All activities
are aligned with South Carolina curriculum standards. The South
Carolina Aquarium Activities were used to faciliate the use of South
Carolina Aquarium exhibits as extensions of the classroom.
has a link to a Word document with the full activity listed. Under
each activity, there is also a focus question to make it easier
to find activities for the subjects the teacher wants to cover.
Some activities also have photographs of the activity taking place,
or the set up of the activity, to facilitate in using the activity.
All of the activities were tested by teachers at the Aquatic Workshops
in 2002-2004, except for third grade. Due to low participation,
the third grade workshop had to be cancelled and therefore, those
activities are untested.
