Summary and Resources
Classroom use of the Lesson Plans and the Project Action Guide should involve process as both a means and an end. The hope is that through following the Process Model, students will gain valuable knowledge about the Chesapeake Bay watershed and its importance to them and to their community. It is also hoped that students will learn the basic principles and techniques of the process of scientific inquiry and will begin to apply these principles elsewhere at school, at home, and in the community.
