Teacher Resources

Based on feedback from teachers, students and parents, we have created this resource page to assist teachers and students alike in learning more about the aquatic world through fact sheets, lesson plans and other resources.

Georgia Aquarium is a dynamic STEAM ecosystem rich with endless learning opportunities for all ages! Please bookmark this resource page for ways to incorporate the aquatic world into your classroom. Check back with us regularly as we are always updating content. If you have used Georgia Aquarium as an extension of your classroom, we want to hear about it! Feel free to reach out to education@georgiaaquarium.org or share your work with us on social media @GeorgiaAquarium.

Check out our new interdisciplinary curricular materials designed for grades 3-56-8, and 9-12! Each set of resources includes an overview of Georgia Aquarium, inquiry-based lessons for each gallery, games and puzzles, and additional resources. Connecting Georgia Aquarium to your classroom is easy: please reference the end of each package to see curricular connections to Common Core Math and English Language Arts standards, Next Generation Science standards, and state-specific standards for Georgia, Alabama, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee.
