ANIMALS Web Site:
SeaWorld also maintains one of the largest animal information websites of any zoological organization. ANIMALS features more that 4000 pages of zoological, ecological, and conservation-minded material – including multimedia- photo, video, and audio of species reference sources, conservation projects, zoological career information, and more.
Did you know that you can incorporate SeaWorld not only into your science curriculum, but across other content areas as well? Teacher’s Guides have been developed for all grade levels at SeaWorld and Busch Gardens to help you teach – in an active, hands-on way – about how people interact with the environment and how we can best care for Earth’s resources. Each guide is free to download and includes goals and objectives, information, vocabulary, a bibliography, and activities. These activities strive to integrate science, mathematics, geography, art, and language.
