Curriculum:

The Casco Bay Curriculum translates the wealth of knowledge about this busy Maine estuary into classroom activities. Hands-on activities and Internet research for students in grades 4-6 use scientific data from research by Friends of Casco Bay and others. Student activities and teacher background information incorporate local water quality data and population studies of "diagnostic species", whose abundance or decline reflect the overall health of the estuary. Students address real-world environmental issues and undertake service learning to improve their communities.

To improve and protect the environmental health of Casco Bay, Maine
