This section includes Bay-related information and resources for teachers to incorporate into their curricula. Also in this section, students can locate Bay-related extracurricular activities. Simply click on the tab above to select a category. Below is a summary of the information that can be found in each of the Teaching Resources' categories.
You can also find specific resources for your jurisdiction in our stateroom section. We encourage you to read the CBP Education Workgroup's Stewardship and Meaningful Watershed Experiences criteria to help you to determine the components of a "meaningful watershed experience" and inspire students to be lifelong stewards of the Chesapeake Bay.

Field Studies - Bay-wide field experience information and field experience locations by state.

Bay Data - Online data such as real-time weather conditions, buoy readings, and environmental conditions for different watersheds. For tips on using data in your classroom or developing data resources for teachers, check out our Using Data webpage.

Summer Programs - Extracurricular summer opportunities on the Bay for students.
