Anchorage Museum


Welcome to the Anchorage Museum's virtual teacher toolbox, which features all the resources you need to introduce your students to a more in-depth and complex view of our ocean systems. Here you will find biographies of the scientists, expedition team and artists, videos, interactives, pre-developed thematic lesson plans for classroom and more.

These Gyre: The Plastic Ocean educational materials are designed to work in your classroom, or in conjunction with an Anchorage Museum field trip through May 16, 2014. You may facilitate a structured experience using the pre-developed Tools for Teachers lesson plans, or modify them to meet existing classroom curriculum topics or standards.

Gyre: The Plastic Ocean Evening for Educators and Tools for Teachers is made possible through the generosity of the William Randolph Hearst Foundation.
