• Science: 5th and 6th class- Seashore Exploration and Guided Tour

      Marine Institute (Marine Institute, 2015)
      Conduct a fieldtrip to the seashore exploring the plants and animal life. Working scientifically the children will learn about the variety and characteristics of living things and processes of life typically found on the seashore.
    • Science: 5th and 6th class- Squid Dissection and Project lesson plan and worksheet

      Marine Institute (Marine Institute, 2015)
      The children will be provided with an introduction to the life process of a squid. The will also learn about the external and internal parts of a squid. The children will also explore some of the ways squid have adapted to environmental conditions as well as discuss simple food chains. As an extension the children may complete a project on the different types of squid found in the ocean.
    • Science: 5th and 6th class-Biodegradation quiz and beach activities using the biodegradation information sheet

      Marine Institute (Marine Institute, 2015)
      The children will learn about the biodegradation of items typically found on the seashore. This activity can be done in class or on the seashore. See also the geography lesson plan on how to organise a seashore safari and beach clea at http://hdl.handle.net/10793/1108
    • Science: 5th and 6th class. Creature feature and chemosynthesis - the hydrothermal vent ecosystem

      Marine Institute (Marine Institute, 2018)
      This lesson provides students with an introduction to the process of life learning about photosynthesis and chemosynthesis. It also introduces students to the hydrothermal vent ecosystem deep under the ocean. Students will also learn about some of the unusual creatures that inhabit this extreme environment highlighting the variety and characteristics of living things at the bottom of the ocean.
    • Science: 5th and 6th class. Experimenting with dissolution

      Marine Institute (Marine Institute, 2018)
      The lesson allows students to explore the effects of solids in hot and cold liquid by conducting a range of experiments mixing different materials in water solutions.
    • Science: 5th and 6th Class: A Whale’s Tale - Meeting marine animals around the world

      Marine Institute (Marine Institute, 2017)
      The aim of the lesson is to enable children to recognise that there is a great diversity of animals in the ocean. The children will become familiar with the characteristics of a variety of marine animals from different regions and ocean environments around the world. They will also learn about marine pollution affecting the animals that live in the ocean. Note: This lesson plan can be used with the drama lesson plan: A Whale’s Tale – Adventures of living in the Ocean.
    • Science: 5th and 6th Class: Build your own seismometer – learning about forces under the sea

      Marine Institute (Marine Institute, 2018)
      Earthquakes occur when parts of the Earth’s crust and upper mantle move suddenly. Large earthquakes can cause catastrophic amounts of damage so it’s very important to be able to predict when they might happen. Earthquakes are detected using a seismometer which detects vibrations in the earth. In class, groups of students can work together to make a simple model of a seismometer to demonstrate how they work. The students will experience working in groups and through a creative process develop skills intrinsic to working scientifically
    • Science: 5th Class and 6th Class - Exploring Communication and Echolocation in Cetaceans (Irish and English Version)

      Marine Institute (Marine Institute., 2014)
      The aim of the lesson plan is for the children to explore how sound travels through materials.
    • Science: 5th Class and 6th Class – Materials and Change - Exploring Desalinating Saltwater (Irish and English Version)

      Marine Institute (Marine Institute., 2014)
      The aim of the lesson plan is for the children to explore the effects of heating on liquids. Desalinating saltwater to create fresh water is used as an example.
    • Science: 5th Class and 6th Class_ Materials - Exploring Marine Debris Degradation (Irish and English Version)

      Marine Institute (Marine Institute., 2014)
      The aim of the lesson plan is for the children identify and investigate a range of common materials in the immediate environment. The children will observe, investigate and experiment on the degradation effects the environment has on these items.
    • Science: Junior Infants and Senior Infants Class - Designing and Making a Dry Suit for Scuba Steve (Irish and English Version)

      Marine Institute (Marine Institute, 2014)
      The aim of the lesson plan is for the children to identify some materials that are waterproof.
