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. Here at GulfQuest we offer Hunts based on grade levels and content needs. Be sure to include 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.
WIPE THE SLATE CLEAN
Long ago, a vessel's course changes were noted on a slab of slate, and later transferred to the logbook. Then the slate was cleaned and reused. So we speak of a "clean slate" as starting anew, all past transgressions forgotten.
