Marine Debris Keiki Education & Outreach Program
Hawaiʻi Wildlife Fund created this Marine Debris Keiki (Children) Education & Outreach curriculum for grades K-5 as part of a project supported by the NOAA Marine Debris Program.
This curriculum introduces ocean circulation, marine ecology, and human impacts with a focus on marine debris to students in K-5th grade. Student activities meet the math and science benchmarks and "Common Core" standards for the State of Hawai'i Department of Education for each grade level. The curriculum includes presentations, lesson plans, activities, and vocab sheets, and culminates with a family "Beach Cleanup Day" at local marine debris hubs.
