OPEN HOUSE ACTIVITIES 2009
We have put together a scavenger hunt of science questions that you can offer your classes as an extra credit assignment. Encourage your students to visit Moss Landing Marine Labs’ Open House on April 25 and 26, 2009 from 9 to 5.
You can download a sample lesson plan and the question handouts here. There are two different versions, one for grades K-5, and one for grades 6-12. The questions will also be available at the K-12 outreach table in our lobby at Open House. We will post the answer key in the week following Open House!

TEACHER ENHANCEMENT PROGRAM: This program developed at Moss Landing Marine Labs is geared to help teachers incorporate marine science and oceanography into their curricula. Run by Dr. Simona Bartl, the the Teacher Enhancement Program (TEP) includes summer workshops for teachers, classroom visits and on-site tours of MLML. Visit our website to learn more!
