Kids Environmental Lesson Plans © Sailors for the Sea

Kids Environmental Lesson Plans (KELP) are free, downloadable marine science activities that encourage curiosity in kids and help them explore their surroundings.

Sailors for the Sea collaborates with leading marine research and education institutions to create these dynamic and relevant lesson plans that address important ocean health issues including plastic pollution, overfishing and climate change.

With simple materials and minimal preparation, the activities are ideal for any educator to implement. Use the kits when weather conditions aren't suitable or in educational settings to promote awareness of ocean health issues.

We want our children to flourish, to become truly empowered as the next generation of ocean stewards. Sailors for the Sea's KELP program will inspire them to know and love the ocean before we ask them to save it.
