The South Carolina Aquarium (SCA) Bottlenose Dolphin Unit was created in partnership with the SCA in Charleston, South Carolina. The purpose of the high school unit is to educate students on the resident population of bottlenose dolphins that live in the Charleston Harbor and surrounding waterways. The SCA Bottlenose Dolphin Unit is comprised of three pre visit activities, one onsite activity and one post site activity. The activities were developed using environmental science articles that studied the targeted bottlenose dolphin population as well as the SCA strategic plan, South Carolina State Standards, the North American Association for Environmental Education guidelines and other key documents. Kolb’s Experiential Learning Theory was used as a foundational theory to create the entire unit. The SCA Bottlenose Dolphin Unit will be taught to the SCA’s Structured School Program participants starting in fall 2019 when the free pre and post visit activities are available online.
