Virtual Learning Programs (3rd – 6th Grades)

Each video presentation is accompanied with a worksheet and additional activities, with the exception of “Help Save the Lagoon,” which is paired with two options for a final project.

IRL and Stormwater Introduction (video 15 mins): Students will be introduced to the unique and amazing ecosystem of the Indian River Lagoon (IRL)! Students will also learn about stormwater runoff and the effects of pollution on the IRL.

Florida Feasts (video 13 mins): Students will learn about energy flow in food chains/webs using animals from the Indian River Lagoon and will learn how pollution disrupts these relationships.

Mangroves Matter (video 18 mins): Students will learn about the different species of mangroves in Florida and their life cycles. Students will also learn how mangroves are able to thrive in their unique environment and their importance for lagoon restoration.

Help Save the Lagoon (video 8 mins): Students will learn about the simple actions they can do at home that can make a big impact on saving the lagoon!

We are here to help you meet the needs of your students!  Please reach out to Nicole Broquet at with any questions!
