Underwater Sound and Orca Communities

Underwater Sound and Orca Communities
Grades 4-8

Through several experiential activities, students will explore underwater sound and orca communities. Activities explore how orcas communicate and work together in family groups, and how these groups relate to what they eat and where they live.

Students will learn how scientists use sound to study marine mammals, including our local endangered orca population, at a research station located right in the PTMSC classroom.

Class length: 90 minutes
Maximum Group Size: 26 students and 4 adults
