Cabrillo Marine Aquarium

Ocean Discovery Kits Teacher Workshop

Saturday, August 24, 2019
9:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Teachers bring students to the Aquarium all the time, but what’s another way to help teachers incorporate CMA’s ocean expertise in the classroom? Our specimen loan program called Ocean Discovery Kits!

The goals of this half-day workshop include providing educators with the background, knowledge, policies and procedures to use our classroom-ready Ocean Discovery Kits. Our specimen loan program for teachers consists of themed boxes. Each kit is packed with preserved specimens and bones, books, DVDs and a resource guide that includes lesson plans and classroom activities.

There are eight Ocean Discovery Kits to choose from:
• Marine Fossils & Sand
• Plankton & Algae
• Marine Invertebrates
• Sharks, Skates & Rays
• Bony Fishes
• Marine Birds & Reptiles
• Marine Mammals
• Ocean Stewardship

Workshop includes:
• Presentations by staff covering details on how to use the kits, including check-out and return policy and procedures
• Breakout time to view and look through all the kits
• Emphasis on marine biology and specimen care
• Opportunity for educators and museum educators to network

The Ocean Discovery Kits are designed to complement California Science Standards. Loan services are available to teachers and non-profit educators who complete the workshop held every fall at the Aquarium. Educators are allowed to check-out two kits per year for three weeks each.

LAUSD Professional Development Credit is available.

This workshop is generously sponsored by Andeavor and FREE to all registered participants. Registration is required, please email - we hope you can join us!
