GulfQuest will offer the following resources to help educators maximize learning before, during and after their field trip to GulfQuest:
Pre- and Post-visit Ideas – Offers suggestions on how to prepare students for a field trip and provide follow-up activities after their visit. These will include connections to social studies, science, math, literature and writing.
Keep students focused on learning outcomes during their visit. Choose your grade level, mixed content treasure hunt, or a content specific treasure hunt. Be sure to include your chaperones so they can be engaged with your students' learning process.
In each link below, you will find a description that outlines how certain GulfQuest exhibits connect with each state's standards.
Home school groups may book a field trip and a Classroom Program.
SON OF A GUN
Men use this expression to acknowledge a friend, but the original use is naval. Women sometimes made short passages to sea aboard sailing warships. A child born in semi-privacy on the gun deck was a "son of a gun."
