Classroom/Learning Resources

Long Island Aquarium Educators have designed age-appropriate
lesson plans and activities for grades K-12. The lessons plans
focus on the animals found at Long Island Aquarium and highlight
their taxonomy and adaptations. While they can be used solely in
the classroom, these lesson plans also include activities specifically
for use when touring the Aquarium.

We hope you find these resources helpful for bringing science into your classroom.
