Teachers – A Field Trip that comes to You!
Teaching Tidepools® is the Institute’s highly-popular original outreach program that gives central San Joaquin Valley preschool and elementary grade children the opportunity to see and touch our living California tide pool animal collection and interact with two of our staff educators right in their own classrooms.
Students throughout Fresno, Madera, Merced, Kings and Tulare counties experience our sea creatures along with an entertaining, interactive standards-based curriculum teachers love.
The program’s Disciplinary Core Ideas are designed to meet California Next Generation Science Standards for Public Schools (CA NGSS).
Fees are $185 for the first 45 minute class (up to 25 children) and $85 per additional class on the same day at the same school site, We gladly accept most school district purchase orders and PTA checks. Mileage and additional time fees may apply to classes outside the Fresno/Clovis metropolitan area.
Please call (559) 490-FISH (3474) or email us today for more information or to schedule your class.
We also offer a more advanced program for 5th and 6th graders that includes the living tide pool animals and delves into Earth’s hydrologic cycle.
