Come explore 8 of the most important estuaries of the United States.

-Puget Sound, Washington
-Cook Inlet, Alaska
-Merrymeeting Bay, Maine
-Boston Harbor, Massachusetts
-Chesapeake Bay, Delmarva
-San Francisco Bay, California
-Pamlico Sound, North Carolina
-Tampa Bay, Florida

Included is a close up view of the Chesapeake Bay, the most famous estuary in North America. Within the Chesapeake Bay, identify some of the most common birds found from the Susquehanna to the Atlantic Ocean:

-Snow Goose
-Big Brown Bat
-Red Winged Blackbird
-Barred Owl
-Canadian Goose
-Great Blue Heron
-Great Egret
-Bald Eagle
-Mallard Duck and Hen
-Wild Turkey
-Snowy Owl
-Osprey
-Northern Cardinal
-Mute Swan
-Carolina Chickadee
-Brown Pelican

This works well for any level but is GREAT for special education students or college prep learners that need an alternative assessment and may not be great at traditional labs.

Also, perfect for homeschooling!

WIDE RANGE OF ABILITY LEVELS! The application to a diverse body of learners, whether it be age or ability level, is predicated on the fact that the instructor determines the difficulty level of the whole activity or part of the activity based on what information is given and what information is not as well as how verbal questions are presented to the student(s).

This is a thorough and DYNAMIC activity that covers a ton of information about estuaries and their birds. This has been used as a pre-class, lab/activity, study guide, review, and assessment. This is an effective teaching tool one on one, in small groups, and as a class when using a Smart Board/Promethean Board/Projection.

A guaranteed hit all around!

A great addition to your hydrology, oceanography, biology, geography, and environmental science teaching library.

Within the classroom, this activity has been consistently very successful and acclaimed by students in grades 3rd – 9th within multiple types of schools - public, private, and charter.

Applicable to many state science assessments and benchmarks.

Has been applied to state mandated North Carolina end of year tests for science in grades 5 and 8.
