Programs on your own

Sometimes the educational programs at naturum Öresund become fully booked. Fortunately, there is an option for you and your class!


We have developed several educational programs for teachers and students to work with on their own. This is part of Malmö City's didactic resource bank Malmö delar. Here you will find complete lesson packages and teacher guides on a variety of topics, including our programs about the sea.

Öresund and Us

Target group: Elementary school year 2 and 3

Half of Malmö municipality's area consists of water, despite this, many of us do not really know what and who lives in the waters near our shores.

In this lesson package, students get to know more about who lives and what grows by the shore. At Öresund's shoreline, students will collect data and document their field study. They have prepared themselves in the classroom by placing themselves on the map, both locally and globally, seen from a sea perspective.

This work area consists of three lessons (in Swedish):

1. The Ocean and Us

2. What lives in the sea? A field study 

3. Finishing work - processing of collected material


Hopp i havet - about the ocean ecosystem

Target group: Primary school year 4-6, special primary school

Most of us are used to seeing Öresund from above, but what is hidden beneath the surface?


"Jump in the sea" is a work area that will provide an opportunity to increase knowledge about the sea and the UN's Sustainable Development Goals with a special focus on goal 14 Life below the surface and sub-goals 14.2 Protect and restore ecosystems. Through theoretical and practical steps, the ecosystems in Öresund's marine environment are explored.

This work area consists of three different parts:

  1. Who eats whom?

  2. Field study - Jump in the sea

  3. Finishing work - processing of collected material


Plastic in the marine ecosystem

Target group: Compulsory school year 7-9, special special school

The impact of humans on nature is becoming more and more visible.  Plastic is a material that is used a lot, but how is water and wildlife outside Malmö affected by humans' use of plastic products?


By learning more about and examining everyday life and the local environment, students gain tools about their own impact and are given tools for their own ability towards action from a sustainability perspective.

This work area consists of five different parts:

  1. Global goals

  2. Plastic around us

  3. What happens to the waste?

  4. Netting along the shores of Öresund

  5. Where is the rubbish? What can I do?
