This toolkit was created for teachers and students in Kindergarten to Grade 12 education communities across Canada, both coastal and inland. The goal of this toolkit is to engage students in ocean education, deepen their understanding of and connection to the ocean, and inspire action in the classroom and beyond. It is intended to meet curricular objectives in numeracy and literacy, science and social studies, health, and other areas. This toolkit also incorporates Indigenous and place-based knowledge and provides students with hands-on learning opportunities. These ready-to-go learning activities and pedagogical strategies will engage students and inspire action in their daily lives, and are designed to be accessible to both ocean enthusiasts and educators taking their first dip.
