Connecting With the Ocean at Ikhaya Labantwana Montessori School in
Coffee Bay, South Africa
The Ikhaya Labantwana Montessori School was one of the first schools to participate in the Oceanlovers Education Program, choosing ocean awareness as a theme for a whole term.
Teachers and children discussed many things related to the ocean and asked why is the ocean is so important.
The Montessori students loved learning about how much space the ocean takes up on our planet and exploring the different ocean zones and its inhabitants.
Colouring in the Oceanlovers worksheets, the group talked about the effect of litter on the ocean, plants and animals and what litter means in our every day environment.
The children also enjoyed looking at shells and learning where they come from and sorted them into bi-valves and omni-valves. The shells were counted and compared and we discussed which were more/less and how many altogether. One of the highlights for the children was making jelly fish from paper and plastic bags.
At the end of the term the students and teachers completed the program with a new awareness and respect for the ocean and the school will continue to implement the things they learned every day.
