The Education Department publishes several teacher manuals and a student workbook to support teachers participating in our education programs. Though written to be used in conjunction with the activities at SERC, the manuals and workbook are a source of information and activities related to Chesapeake Bay ecology and environmental research that may be of interest to other teacher. All teacher manuals are free for teachers who have registered for a SERC education program.
