Free Professional Development Opportunity for Primary Teachers with Steve Hathaway from Young Ocean Explorers
Let Steve Hathaway, underwater cameraman for BBC’s Blue Planet 2 and creator of Young Ocean Explorers introduce you to the unique underwater world of New Zealand. Steve’s compelling footage and stories are all centred around their Young Ocean Explorers website from which you can confidently teach ecology, the environment living world, habitats and endangered species. The Young Ocean Explorers website covers topics that link to the curriculum for science, social sciences, english, health and physical education and the arts. Steve will introduce you to these curriculum links and the assignments that you can use and create for your class. Come along to the evening and you will leave with an assignment created for your class ready to go.
Register as a teacher on the Young Ocean Explorers website in advance so you’re ready to go on the night.
