Reef Relief: Marine Science Virtual Classroom
Florida Keys' Reef Relief offers virtual classes on Facebook Live. The first topics are "Ecosystems and Food Chains," "Coral Reefs," and "Mangrove Ecosystems." The goal is for lessons to be as interactive as possible, so during the live stream students are encouraged to ask questions in the comment section below the video.
All lessons and supplemental materials including activities, videos, and lesson outlines are posted on Reef Relief blog. Interested students should check out website blog posts a few days prior to each lesson as there will be worksheets, videos, and optional activity supplies they may want to collect before each live lesson. The instructors will be referring to some of these materials (especially the worksheets) throughout the live videos
Each lesson is geared towards students in preK through 8th grade, but anyone is welcome to join, participate, and enjoy.
New lessons take place at 10:30am Eastern, 9:30am Central, 7:30am Pacific.
