Ken Watson of LifeSong - With Friends
Supporting Science Standards With a Smile

Ken Watson's presentations are a blend of Ocean Science, music, slides and incredible artifacts all delivered with a smile and a true passion for the topic. Choose from a range 50-minute lessons that delve into exciting aspects of marine life, or an all day Super Science event, or even an all-week workshop.

Super Science Day delivers an ocean science base, reinforced with art activities - a real "right brain - left brain" experience. Not only do the children internalize ocean science, but they also carry away projects to reinforce the concepts learned.

Ken's Ocean Week workshop features material from all of his lessons, culminating with Family Ocean Night and a look back at a week of ocean science and fun.

Ken also paints ocean murals with children. The murals are "children driven" - a coordinate geometry lesson disguised as creative ocean graphity. You pick the ocean theme. The children will measure, graph, label and draw the mural to scale on a handball backboard, wall or obscure piece of playground. You provide the canvas - Ken provides the painting. Click on the Murals link to see some of his murals.

Ken has written over a hundred songs and poems to teach ocean science with a fine arts twist. You can find some of his work featured below.
