Life at Sea

An Inquiry Investigation of Maritime Artifacts

About this Lesson

The purpose of this inquiry-based unit is to teach students how to investigate artifacts from different mariners, and to interpret understanding of a life at sea.  The project allows students to make global and STEM connections to maritime history and ocean-going vessels.  This series of lessons is intended for grades 5-9, but may be modified for other grades or levels.  The links to the digital collections may be used in a flipped classroom, or serve as resources for students.  For background information about whaling, please see the "Whaling" resource set on this website.
