This series of three lessons sets the scene for students who are about to commence Ocean related units of work, or as a standalone unit to introduce the idea of ocean literacy.
The lessons build on prior knowledge of oceans and the species and habitats it encompasses. Students explore ecosystem goods and services and answer GCSE style questions reflecting on how we use the oceans. The unit then reviews what is meant by ocean plastics pollution and encourages students to critically appraise information from different media sources. Students then go on to consider careers in this field by evaluating the work of an 'Ocean hero'.
