Green Fire Productions has recently released a suite of secondary and post-secondary educator resources to accompany their 4-part film series, Ocean Frontiers. The films explore how unlikely allies – government, industry, science and conservation – are working together to find solutions that benefit ocean ecosystems and economies.
The Exploring Ocean Frontiers Educator Resources build on real-world science and delve into ocean planning and stewardship, collaborative science, marine biodiversity, ocean data portals and stakeholder engagement. The secondary lessons are inquiry-based and connected to Next Generation Science Standards. The post-secondary discussion guides are designed to facilitate classroom conversations on collaborative ocean planning and the future of our oceans.
New England coastal topics – from saving whales at Stellwagen Bank to an offshore wind farm in Rhode Island to lobstering in Maine – are featured in three of the films. Download these complimentary resources at: https://ocean-frontiers.org/educator-resources
