  • Why did ships run aground or sink?

✎Read MANY REVIEWS from homeschool and public school teachers RIGHT HERE.

"A wonderful, rich resource filled with hands-on, multi-curricular lessons, and oral histories." - Sarah K., Education Director, Annapolis Maritime Museum & Park, MD
“This is such a niche product, but it’s a gem of a find. I like that Exploring the U.S. Life-Saving Service is targeted to older students, since a lot of times cool unit studies are made for elementary students. The content is really unlike anything you will find elsewhere.” - Jenn L.

✎“My favorite thing about this curriculum is that it appeals to boys in a big way, especially their desire to meet heroes and be a hero. Yes, girls will love this, too (I do!), but it is hard to find stuff that guys just love and latch on to.  I appreciated the depth of the material and how much fun Rebecca Locklear made every workshop!” -Meredith C.
