Curricula - Lobster Die-off!

The Peabody Fellows Biodiversity and Human Health program, with funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the Bay and Paul Foundations, created an event-based science curriculum unit in 2007 about the massive lobster die-off in the Long Island Sound in 1999. This unit, which addresses climate change and other global environmental changes, is geared towards middle and high school students.
