Post Summer Ocean Exploration

Some students will have been fortunate enough to spend some of their summer time at the ocean.   They and, perhaps more importantly, those children who were without this privilege, can explore these k-12 featured resources to stimulate classroom discussion about marine animals, aquatic ecosystems, and careers in science:
