Education Workshops

Education Session Web Tile

Our SEA LIFE workshops provide a unique opportunity to honor, help protect, and conserve our world’s shared oceans.

Our workshops have a cross-curricular approach, with particular focus on:

  • Science (Adaption, Inheritance, Evolution and Variation, Biological Processes, Marine Wildlife, Welfare and Conservation)
  • Geography (Oceans Around The World, Ocean Habitats, Human Impact on the Ocean)
  • Literacy (Comprehension and Inference, Reading, Creative Writing Inspired by Wildlife)
  • Don't forget to download your pre and post classroom activities

Homes In The Sea Workshop Web Tile

Homes in the Sea Workshop

Recommended Ages: Preschool - Kindergarten

Workshop Description: Visit creatures at home in the sea! Together we will dive into a world of amazing discovery to explore  the fascinating and diverse habitats in our world’s ocean, and the animals that call them home! Students will discuss what we as humans need to survive, and how animals and all living things have similar needs, then dive in to explore just what makes the perfect underwater home for some of the world’s most amazing creatures.

Life Science: From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes. Use observations to describe patterns of what plants and animals (including humans) need to survive

Earth and Space Sciences: Earth and Human Activity. Use a model to represent the relationship between the needs of different plants and animals (including humans) and the places they live

TEKS Covered:

K Science 112.11

7B, 9A, B, 10B

Sea Creatures Workshop Web Tile

Sea Creatures Workshop

Recommended Ages: 1st – 5th grade

Workshop Description: Invite students to learn about some of our core SEA LIFE creatures! Together they will dive into a world of amazing discovery to learn about three core creatures: sharks, jellyfish and seahorses – understanding their different needs and completing exclusive SEA LIFE quizzes for each. Students will think about the importance of animal welfare and use the core aquarium standards to create tanks for the different creatures, based on their understanding of creatures’ needs and happiness markers.

Life Science: From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes. Use materials to design a solution to a human problem by mimicking how plants and/or animals use their external parts to help them survive, grow, and meet their needs

Life Science: Biological Evolution: Unity and Diversity. Make observations of plants and animals to compare the diversity of life in different habitats

Life Science: From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes. Construct an argument that plants and animals have internal and external structures that function to support survival, growth, behavior, and reproduction

Life Science: Biological Evolution: Unity and Diversity. Construct an argument with evidence that in a particular habitat some organisms can survive well, some survive less well, and some cannot survive at all

Sea Defenders Workshop Web Tile

Sea Defenders Workshop

Recommended Ages: 3rd – 5th grade

Workshop Description: Invite students to become Sea Defenders! They will investigate it is important to protect our oceans, raising awareness of their own relationships with the ocean and how their daily actions can positively or negatively affect the marine environment. Students should be inspired to make changes in their lifestyle and actively contribute towards solutions.

Biological Evolution: Unity and Diversity. Construct an argument with evidence that in a particular habitat some organisms can survive well, some survive less well, and some cannot survive at all.

Biological Evolution: Unity and Diversity. Make a claim about the merit of a solution to a problem caused when the environment changes and the types of plants and animals that live there may change.

Earth and Human Activity. Obtain and combine information to describe that energy and fuels are derived from natural resources and their uses affect the environment.

Earth and Human Activity. Obtain and combine information about ways individual communities use science ideas to protect the Earth’s resources and environment.

Habitat Explorers Workshop Web Tile

Habitat Explorers Workshop

Recommended Ages: 6th - 8th grade

Workshop Description: Invite students to become Habitat Explorers as they dive deep underwater into the ocean habitats of some of our SEA LIFE creatures! Together they will jump into a world of amazing discovery to learn about the different zones of the ocean and the creatures that live there. Thinking about habitats and adaptation, students will consider the challenges of different micro-habitats in the ocean, matching creatures and their adaptations to the different zones that they discover, and eventually creating their very own sea creatures!

From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes. Construct a scientific explanation based on evidence for how environmental and genetic factors influence the growth of organisms

Ecosystems: Interactions, Energy, and Dynamics. Analyze and interpret data to provide evidence for the effects of resource availability on organisms and populations of organisms in an ecosystem

Ecosystems: Interactions, Energy, and Dynamics. Construct an argument supported by empirical evidence that changes to physical or biological components of an ecosystem affect populations

Earth and Human Activity. Apply scientific principles to design a method for monitoring and minimizing a human impact on the environment

Earth and Human Activity. Construct an argument supported by evidence for how increases in human population and per-capita consumption of natural resources impact Earth’s systems
