Math and Science classes track a great white shark just off the Wildwood coast with Twitter!

http://www.ocearch.org/profile/mary_lee/#curriculum Bring Science and Mathematics to life using  authentic options that will have students bombarding their parents at the dinner table with all they have learned. Classes can track the progress of this Great White Shark and teachers have access to the curriculum resources. Full Lesson plans for grades 3-5 and 6-8 are now available for free download. Addressing a tremendous demand for dynamic STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) content, OCEARCH and Landry’s Inc. present a new curriculum that allows students to learn alongside Ph.D’s – for free – in a program that will eventually span K-12. Based on real science, this dynamic curriculum is intended to promote environmental awareness and to prepare students of all ages for careers in science, technology, engineering, and math.
