Education - Teacher Resources

Lobsters and the lobstering industry provide a wealth of learning opportunities for students of all ages. Lobsters are an excellent fit in science fields such as biology and anatomy. However, we also encourage teachers to incorporate lobsters into their class curriculum’s in a variety of areas. Whether it is the culture and folklore surrounding lobsters and lobstermen; the economics of the industry; or the process of passing laws and regulations to manage the fishery…the American lobster, and the people and industry that surrounds it, can teach us a great deal.

As always, please consider the Lobster Institute your resource for lobster information. Contact us with any questions or direction as you build your lobster-based curriculum.
