DoE Resources for teachers
The DoE maintains a library of educational resources such as activity books, videos, and curriculum guides.
Notable among these is the Coral Forest Teacher’s Guide, an interdisciplinary curriculum for grades K-12. The information available in this guide enables teachers and students to learn about the beauty and diversity of life on the coral reef, its value to people and related ecosystems, threats, and possible solutions. The Department of Environment was kindly allowed to ‘localise’ this teachers guide for the Cayman Islands and to distribute a copy to schools through the country.
