Resource Books

From its inception in 2013, Marine CSI has been dedicated to assisting educators with lessons on coastal ecology. With these first two resource books, with accompanying student workbooks, educators have over 180 lessons, divided into eight units, to choose from.  During the pandemic, we developed even more ways to get outside and view these ecosystems with our Explore Your Watershed Series.

From our valued customers:

"I am in awe of what you have put together!!! What an incredible amount of work, thought, creativity, imagination, and detailed research you've put into these books. They are treasure troves for educators - both in depth and breadth." ~Judy, Education Director, Roanoke, VA

"I absolutely love this book! I am a high school teacher and contacted the author directly about offering a free sample of the book before ordering. I was able to use the free lesson with my students and then purchased the book for my class. This is a great resource for teachers who would like to bring marine science into their curriculum." ~Amazon.com reviewer
