The South Carolina Aquarium, in partnership with teachers, has created this online curriculum for teachers to use with their students in the classroom. The curriculum theme for kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade is Habitats, a place where an organism lives. The activities teach concepts that build on this theme. All activities are based upon South Carolina Science Standards, and each activity contains background information, procedures, materials lists, standards addressed, assessments, curriculum extensions and resource lists. We hope teachers will enjoy this resource!
If you are a teacher planning to bring your students to the Aquarium to participate in a classroom program, we recommended completing the following activities in order before your visit (represented with an *). Those activites include:
- Living Things
- Water Wonders
- South Carolina Habitats
