Aboard Lobster Tales, students will have a rare opportunity to experience a hands-on activity hauling lobster traps from Plymouth Harbor, MA. Students will learn about the daily life of a New England lobster fisherman. The focus will be on lobster biology, lobster trap mechanics, comparing different species of crabs and discovering other sea creatures that live in the harbor. Students will be encouraged to closely examine the catch. They will learn that interacting and asking questions are both fun and educational.
Taking students outside the classroom and immersing them in the outdoors will give them a better understanding and appreciation of their ocean environment.
Educational materiel will be specific to the age level of the group, ranging from pre-school to high school.
