  • Skills including use of techniques, tools, development and implementation of investigations
  • Practices related to STEAM as a way of knowing (e.g. manipulate, test, explore, predict, question, observe, and make sense of the natural and physical world)
  • Engagement in STEAM activities, learning practices, tools and language, topics, concepts, phenomena, theories, or careers
  • Interest, Excitement, & Motivation to learn about STEAM topics, phenomena, concepts, and theories or to pursue STEAM careers

Ocean Conservation

Together we will investigate the animals that live in the waters around Florida. We’ll build model ocean habitats; collect, test, and compare actual water samples from various local sources; and learn how we study the animals of the ocean. We’ll also learn about the impacts that humans have on the oceans and various organizations working to preserve our oceans and keystone species in Northeast Florida.
