Students go on a web-quest for information on Save the Bay’s Bay Classroom website. They discover facts and information about the part of the San Francisco Bay, its history, the creatures that call it home, and ways they can help protect the bay. This easy activity requires little supervision and is thus offered as a great substitute teacher lesson plan or for one of those teaching days when you need a last minute lesson. Suggestions for making this lesson more interactive are provided.
Can identify the major events that contributed to the current state of the San Francisco Bay.
Can describe some of the plants and animals that live in the Bay.
Can explain the importance of the San Francisco Bay and its watershed to the state of California.
Can describe some things students can do to help protect and preserve the Bay.
