Marine Science and Environmental Inquiry
Limestone Creek Elementary School partners with The Reef Institute to create a unique Marine Science experience for all students. The program goal is to teach students how to become stewards of the ocean and why taking care of it is so important to our environment and our future. Marine Biologists teach students about our coastal ecosystem and coral reef conservation using live animals in 11 on–site tanks, including a custom made shark and ray tank. In addition, students participate in the growing process of mangroves and coral propagation in order to deepen their understanding of local ecosystems and the impact of humans on their environment. Additional curricular resources include lesson plans created by Loggerhead Marinelife Center that are implemented in grades K–5. These project–based lessons focus on the growth and protection of red mangroves and the nesting process of sea turtles. Limestone Creek Elementary students engage in the engineering design process in an onsite STEM lab as they learn about renewable resources and environmental conservation.
