EOL is partnering with The Encyclopedia of Earth (EoE), a free online source of reliable information about the environment and Listen Edition, a company that creates teaching materials around compelling public radio stories. Together, they are giving educators free access to relevant lesson plans, and teaching resources that will support using of EOL's One Species at a Time podcasts in classrooms anywhere in the world.

The first three lesson plans in the collaboration are now available for teachers to use for free with their middle and high school students.

Lesson Collaborations:

Killer Whales lesson plan helps teachers address the essential questions: Why are killer whales difficult to study? How have killer whales adapted to feeding on different types of prey?

Spotted Dolphins and Spinner Dolphins lesson plan looks at how changes in fishing methods put dolphin populations at risk and what scientists have tried to do to reduce the risk.

Right Whales lesson plan looks at how right whales find each other when it is time to mate.
