The Take Me Fishing™ campaign and Discovery Education have added more educational tools to the recently updated Explore the Blue website.

Explore the Blue offers new digital media to engage students in a dialogue about the importance of outdoor recreational activities, such as boating and fishing, and the value of clean and healthy natural resources.

New content includes:

  • A Field Investigations Guide designed to help students gain the skills necessary to conduct their own scientific investigations
  • A Virtual Habitat Map to show students what aquatic plants and animals are found in their geographic region
  • Enhanced math, science, social studies, physical education, and English lesson plans for K-2 and 3-5 grades
  • New video to supplement classroom learning on waterways, boats and more
