Monterey Bay Aquarium Field Trip
Learning is fun when it’s under the sea! On Saturday, November 11, 2017, a group of 18 of us went to Monterey Bay Aquarium for a 3-hour field trip. We had 2 middle school students, 10 elementary school students, and 6 volunteers.
We had the fortune of being accepted to the Free-to-Learn program at the aquarium, similar to last year. This provided us with tickets for all the students and tutors.
The middle school students really enjoyed the new Tentacles exhibit, which had many octopi. Something new this year was that the aquarium provided questions for the elementary school students to guide them through the exhibits. This kept them engaged as they tried to read the exhibit material to answer their questions. This ended up being a huge learning experience for them, which made it very fun for all of us.
Congratulations to Emiliano and Rodrigo for their attendance awards! Both of these middle school students have been in our program for at least 6 years.
