This OLogy activity shows kids that there are simple, but very helpful things they can do to protect the ocean -- even if they live nowhere near the water. The activity opens by introducing kids to Gabby, a future marine biologist who wants to study dolphins. Then it has a checklist of 14 ways kids can be ocean helpers that includes asking for tap water instead of bottled water and leaving plants and animals where they find them. (less)

Dolphins and other marine mammals have pretty big brains compared to the size of their bodies. That's one indication of high intelligence, and anyone who has seen them perform at an aquarium or zoo can attest to that fact. Science reporter Bob Hirshon introduces us to one scientist who's trying to find out how dolphins got so brainy. (less)

The dolphin has a large mouth to consume large prey. This animal has a flexible skeleton and flippers/long fingers to move quickly and gracefully through the ocean. The ribs of the dolphin protect the animal's internal organs, but are loosely attached to the spine so they can collapse during dives to the deep ocean. (less)

This case study is based on the 1978 – 1988 Bottlenose dolphin die-offs along the Atlantic coast of the U.S. It demonstrates nature of science, as new information evolved theories change. New observations lead to more sophisticated inferences, as more observations are carefully recorded, better inferences can be made. (less)
