CCMI’s Education team is pleased to offer the following resources to educators to use in the classroom. Please contact our team education@reefresearch.org if you would like more information about the educational opportunities available at CCMI for you and your students.

LESSON PLANS

These lesson plans complement CCMI’s Reefs Go Live programme, which are aligned with the Science National Curriculum objective for Years 5-6 in the Cayman Islands government schools. Participation in the live dive broadcasts and use of these lessons is open to all teachers in Cayman, regardless of age and subject matter taught. In fact, Reefs Go Live offers great cross-curricular opportunities to engage students in coral reefs as a real-life platform for teaching in other subject areas such as math and writing.
