Follow a Journey Around the Americas – With Free Materials for Educators
Monday June 7, 2010
Around the Americas, a 28,000 mile sailing circumnavigation of the American continents launched by Sailors for the Sea, has started a campaign to “inspire, educate and engage citizens of the Americas to protect our fragile oceans.”
As part of the campaign, educators can download free educational curriculum about ocean issues, or become an Ocean Watcher and take a pledge to do things in your normal life that will help the oceans.
The campaign is ambitious, with a goal of getting the information out to 28,000 students by the start of the fall 2010 school year.
Teachers – if you download the materials, let me know what you think!
