In 2011, with support from the Disney Conservation Fund, REEF began working on the creation and implementation of a curriculum designed for elementary and high school students to accompany the Grouper Moon Project. The curriculum focuses on bringing Nassau Grouper into Cayman elementary and high school classrooms through lesson plans and live-feed videos that will connect classrooms with scientists in the field.
The culmination of this effort is a series of lesson plans, educator guides, and activities appropriate for both elementary and high school students, in the Cayman Islands and beyond. We are pleased to provide access to these resources. Please contact Grouper Moon Educator, Todd Bohannon at todd@REEF.org, with any questions and to let us know you are using these resources.
