GulfQuest offers the following resources to help educators maximize learning outcomes 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 curriculum connections to social studies, science, math, literature and writing.
Scavenger Hunts help students stay focused on learning outcomes. They also prompt them to engage with the exhibits on a deeper level. Choose one of the Treasure Hunts below based on your grade level and content needs. Be sure to include your chaperones- you might be surprised how much they enjoy these activities, too!
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.
