If you have students drawings or letters about the Aquarium, please consider sending them our way!
There are so many ways teachers creatively connect an Aquarium field trip experience to their classroom curriculum. There are science lessons, books to read, and art opportunities. Many teachers tell us they use the experience as a source of inspiration for a writting assignment. Whether its pursuasive writting, descriptive narratives, or formal letters, the Aquarium field trip can inspire students to take pencil to paper and create impressive pieces of writting. Not only does our staff love seeing how much students have enjoyed the Aquarium, but letters and artwork from students are an important way to communicate to our donors. A “Thank you” letter or picture of “My Favorite Aquarium Animal” are the best way to illustrate the need for continued support of our scholarship program. If your students have created materials, please feel free to share them with us. Every letter goes a long way!
If you have student letters to share, please send them to us at the following address:
Aquarium of the Pacific
100 Aquarium Way
Long Beach, CA 90802
Thanks in advance for helping us promote the importance of field trips and scholarship opportunities.
