Explore “The Bay” with Mote

Go on a lively journey with Mote as we explore and learn about local habitats and adaptations during a virtual visit to the new “Bay Park.” This interactive science exploration will take you virtually to “The Bay” to learn more about this new community park. During this class, students will be transformed into scientists to learn how to use tools and to make observations. Students will learn what it’s like to be a scientist while investigating plants, animals, and the bay environment along the way. Each student will be provided with a Field Guide to follow along and take notes.

In addition to the virtual exploration, a kit centered on the watershed is available to teachers for check out. As a follow up, students are invited to visit The Bay with their families and to check out a backpack with hands-on learning materials so that they can share what they learned with their family.
