The BioMara project has produced a range of teaching materials for primary schools in Scotland, the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland to create awareness of algae and how energy can be produced from them. The materials consider both seaweeds (also called macroalgae) and microalgae (also called phytoplankton).
There are six lesson plans, identification information for seaweeds and a poster. You can either download these separately or in one. Hard copies were sent to 900 schools across the three regions.
Each lesson consists of a content section and an activity section. The content section provides the background knowledge for the teacher. The activity section comprises of a brief description of the lesson, learning outcomes and a variety of activities that may be used, such as written, pictorial, interactive and experimental activities. The learning outcomes are assessed in each lesson by the final activity. The materials may be adapted to suit the ability of the class. The Irish, Northern Irish and Scottish curricula (as of 2012) were used in the design of the activity sections.
The teaching materials are colour coded:
