The Lawrence Hall of Science at the University of California at Berkeley worked extensively with scientists at Rutgers University and University of San Diego, the East Coast MARE team, scientists and educators at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and many others to develop the “GEMS® Ocean Science Sequence for Grades 3-5.”
The curriculum materials provide teachers and students opportunities to conduct their own investigations about the oceans. In addition, the materials highlight the oceanographic expedition of Dr.s Oscar Schofield, Josh Kohut, and Scott Glenn as an autonomous underwater glider makes the first crossing of the Atlantic Ocean!
All of the materials are grounded in the new national Science Standards.
