Ocean Education Classroom

Presenting Ocean Edu-Tainment for Keiki

Kindergarten – 5th Grade

As part of our ongoing commitment to mālama kekahi i kekahi, to take care of each other, Maui Ocean Center is proud to introduce the Ocean Education Classroom – an online resource for culture and education that can be experienced from the comfort of home. Through this virtual program, we hope to provide an alternative interactive environment for families to enjoy together that is both safe and fun. Mahalo for choosing to spend your time with us!

Created in collaboration with Cultural Advisor Dane Maxwell and Kupu Productions, the Ocean Education Classroom is an online community resource featuring a Hawaiian word of the week, story readings, coloring sheets, crafts, and more. Activities are appropriate for grades K-5.
