Detailed Information:
KIDSNET has produced a web-based interactive study guide for SeaWeb, an organization dedicated to providing information about the ocean and life within it in an effort to educate humans about the vital role of the ocean in our world and the importance of conservation. KIDSNET is a nationally recognized, non-profit education and media resource that has, since 1985, encouraged media literacy in young people and their families and a commitment to educational excellence in the media industry. KIDSNET develops study guides such as this one for various subject areas and grade levels in order to help teachers use electronic media in the classroom, and attain the national curriculum standards. This new study guide is based around "The Ocean Report," a series of short radio programs hosted by Peter Benchley and co-produced by SeaWeb that have aired on NPR and other radio stations. The guide uses the programs as a springboard for further discussion, activities, and experiments to help students in grades 4-8 learn about the ocean. Along with extensive background information, hands-on activities, web interactivity, and many resources, the guide includes a searchable database of "The Ocean Report" radio programs with audio clips of the programs. For more information on SeaWeb, you can visit www.seaweb.org.
