Summer and the Secret World of Dolphins

from Dolphin Research Center

Program image

What is life like for a dolphin? How do they catch their food? Swim into the wonderful world of dolphins with Summer, a spotted dolphin. Learn about their lives and what it is like to hunt as a dolphin. Grades K-2 will focus on what animals like dolphins need to survive, while students grades 3-5 can focus on food chains. At the end students have the opportunity to ask a dolphin expert questions about dolphins while also learning how they can lessen their impact on the marine environment. All studio-based distance learning programs include a live instructor interaction with video clips from all around our beautiful Florida Keys facility.

Ocean Literacy Principles
5A Ocean life ranges in size from the smallest living things, microbes, to the largest animal on Earth, blue whales.
5D Ocean biology provides many unique examples of life cycles, adaptations, and important relationships among organisms (symbiosis, predator-prey dynamics, and energy transfer) that do not occur on land.
6D Humans affect the ocean in a variety of ways. Laws, regulations, and resource management affect what is taken out and put into the ocean. Human development and activity leads to pollution (point source, nonpoint source, and noise pollution), changes to ocean chemistry (ocean acidification), and physical modifications (changes to beaches, shores, and rivers). In addition, humans have removed most of the large vertebrates from the ocean.
6G Everyone is responsible for caring for the ocean. The ocean sustains life on Earth and humans must live in ways that sustain the ocean. Individual and collective actions are needed to effectively manage ocean resources for all.

State Standards

Florida Next Generation Science Standards met or supported:
SC.1.L.17.1 Through observation, recognize that all plants and animals, including humans, need the basic necessities of air, water, food, and space.
SC.2.L.17.1 Compare and contrast the basic needs that all living things, including humans, have for survival.
SC.2.L.17.2 Recognize and explain that living things are found all over Earth, but each is only able to live in habitats that meet its basic needs.
SC.3.L.17.2 Recognize that plants use energy from the Sun, air, and water to make their own food.
SC.4.L.17.2 Explain that animals, including humans, cannot make their own food and that when animals eat plants or other animals, the energy stored in the food source is passed to them.

SC.4.L.17.4 Recognize ways plants and animals, including humans, can impact the environment.
