The Marine Conservation Society (MCS) has recently launched its spectacular new Cool Seas website. State-of-the-art, it features lots of interactive games and exciting activities, beautiful images and plenty of information about UK marine wildlife, all presented in an entertaining way to appeal to a younger audience.
The website is the latest addition to the MCS Cool Seas Roadshow, which has been touring England’s primary schools and public events, with life-sized marine models.
Designed primarily for school pupils and teachers to raise awareness of just how cool’ life in our UK seas is, it will appeal to a much wider audience too. For primary school teachers, there is a whole suite of downloadable curriculumñlinked lesson plans.
Through the Roadshow, pupils and teachers alike have been thrilled to find their school halls filled with life-sized replicas of whales, dolphins, seals, turtles and even a great white shark. Pupils learn the importance of our marine wildlife, its conservation and the small steps we can all take to make a positive difference to our blue planet.
Angus Bloomfield, from the MCS, says: ‘Our research has shown that school teachers would like to feature more marine education in their classrooms but lack support on the subject ñ so we are trying to change that. The launch of our new Cool Seas website completes our comprehensive range of educational resources and we hope they will be widely used.’
The new Cool Seas website and resources
are available to everyone, free of charge,
