Expedition Chesapeake provides a series of educational experiences in structured learning units that will engage students in the exploration and analysis of the vitality of the Chesapeake Bay watershed.
It is important for students to have real-life, hands-on experiences from which to learn as it provides a context for them to make sense of the world around them. While science knowledge can be memorized, the concepts are clarified and retained through personal experiences. More for parents.
Expedition Chesapeake is a great idea for science teachers throughout the watershed as it provides opportunities for students to explore what is occurring in their area of the watershed through hands-on, minds-on experiences. More for teachers.
