Marine Education Resource Pack

This education pack has been produced by the Community of Arran Seabed Trust (COAST). This work has been funded by the Ellerman Foundation, Esmee Fairbarn Foundation and the University of West England.
The pack is aimed at level 2 of the Curriculum for Excellence with scope for extending some of the activities beyond level 2 or adapting some for level 1. It has been designed to develop pupils’ knowledge and skills and through raising their awareness, encourage them to take responsibility for the seas around us. It contains both classroom based activities and those which can be carried out on a trip to the shore.

These activities have been tried and tested in various schools around Arran and have been successful in engaging students and teachers.
