Teachers! We’re offering virtual field trips during our closure to allow your students to experience the wildlife and science programs normally offered at the Living Coast. All programs are standards-based. This will be available until the end of the school year, June 31, 2020. We’ve created at least one video and accompanying lesson resources per each grade range. You can view the entire playlist on YouTube or simply select your grade below:
Footprints on the Marsh
Tread lightly – our impact can be bigger than we think. Students will learn how to use binoculars to locate native birds in their local habitat. Students will record and tally different species for comparison.
What could be more perfect than learning about pollinators back dropped by a living garden? Through watching a fun, interactive role-play the students will view the entire pollination sequence!
Ewe! That’s one scaly, slimy dissection. Through this fun, interactive lesson, students explore the internal and external parts that help a fish survive its marine habitat.
Food Chain Hunt
Kick start your ecology knowledge with a fun hike on Sweetwater Marsh. Students will study important aspects of ecology such as adaptations, predator-prey relations, and the recycling of matter.
Eat, Don’t Get Eaten
This program is a perfect introduction to everything ecology. Come be challenged by the delicate balance of an ecological food web that must overcome disasters, natural and man-made alike.
Good, Bad, and Bizarre
Discover the animal “gene pool lottery” that will produce good adaptations, bad traits, and bizarre appearances for wild animals. Students will see modeled dominant and recessive traits and get a chance to meet some unique animals along the way!
