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 still book a field trip including Classroom Programs.
MISS THE BOAT
We "miss the boat" when we arrive too late to be of any use. In port, if a sailor missed the boat sent to return him to his ship, he was considered absent without leave, and therefore in serious trouble.
