Students will learn about the Chesapeake Bay as an estuary and will learn what characteristics of estuaries make them productive ecosystems and good oyster habitat. Students will learn the importance of the oyster in terms of human consumption, animal habitat, and health of the Chesapeake Bay. Students will get a hands on opportunity to dissect an oyster to find out how its anatomy contributes to the health of the Bay.
