Learning Resources & Crafts

Long Island Aquarium Educators have designed age-appropriate learning resources 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.
