ARCUS is pleased to share a new resource, a curriculum unit focused on the Arctic Ocean. This curriculum unit, funded by the North Pacific Research Board, updates lessons originally created by PolarTREC alumni teachers to create a unit that uses recent data, aligns with NGSS, polar, and ocean literacy principles, and encourages cultural relevancy. The entire unit can be downloaded through the resources section of the PolarTREC website.
