“I downloaded a copy of this guide for my 6th grade class. I cannot believe how much information is in it! We are reviewing it now and completing the suggested activities as a classroom. I cannot wait for our end of the year whale watching trip. We will now be able to identify what we see.” – Mary R., Plymouth
“My son wants to be a marine biologist. He loved the section on ocean related jobs and is proudly displaying his certificate on the wall.” Sherri, Newport.
