Aquatic Classroom

Oceaneers Education Logo greenAIMS

The aim of this aquatic education programme is to introduce a tropical aquarium into the school classroom and use it as an education tool. It provides an excellent hands-on teaching tool as it offers students of all ages the opportunity to learn directly through experience. Caring for the aquarium kindles a sense of responsibility, achievement and a genuine desire to learn. Students not only develop learning skills, but, because they get excited about their aquarium, are eager to share what they learned with family members and friends.

A teaching aquarium is a great way for students of all ages to learn about a variety of topics and gain valuable life lessons. Teachers are given a unique opportunity to teach a receptive audience in a fun and interactive manner, and to facilitate and provide a teacher-friendly experience, Seiche will provide all relevant teaching resources, lesson plans and activities, thus allowing teachers an educational and enjoyable experience.

The lesson plans and activities aim to integrate aquatic themes into strands taught to school students aged between nine and twelve years. The lesson plans are based on the School Curriculum including subjects such as Science, Geography, History, Mathematics, Language and Arts Education. On completion of this project the class will be awarded an Aquatic Classroom certificate of participation.
