Student readers are the centerpieces of the "Marine Animals and Teaching the Elementary Core Curriculum" early childhood (K-3) life science program. It promotes observation and investigation to guide students through an exploration of marine animals. The program, based on the "Elly Jelly Looks at Animals" curriculum, strongly emphasizes literacy while it builds fundamental science study and research skills. All lessons are interdisciplinary, aligned with National, State and City standards and use brain-based techniques such as comparing and classifying, and cooperative groups to enhance student achievement. Please note: Priority will be given to teachers in grades K-3. Participants will receive copies of the books covered in class.
