Lesson Plans and Teacher Resources
Ecosystem and Climate Change:
Ocean Ecosystems (Grades 3-8): This lesson plan allows students to compare four marine ecosystems (Antarctica, Florida, California, Alaska)
Antarctica Melting (Grades 3-8): a 4-part activity that includes scientist-narrated slide shows and related lesson plans.
Now you see ice, now you don’t (grades 8-12)
Data Nugget lessons are co-designed by scientists and educators, and challenge students to interpret real data collected by a featured scientist. Lessons are scaled to account for varying data skills of students.
Currents – Special Issue focused on Polar Literacy
Palmer LTER-based Polar Data Stories: How do whales find food? and What drives patterns in ocean change?
Polar Data Stories are co-designed by scientists and educators, and invite students to interact with real data in the context of a science question.
Join LTER scientist Andrew Corso on a 5-part virtual challenge to identify various organisms that live in Antarctica. Learn more about how they fit into the food web and what it’s like to do research at Palmer Station.
