It’s Friday, August 14, 2020, and time for a Virtual Field Trip at ClickSchooling!

 

Recommended Website:

National Aquarium

(aqua.org/explore)

Age Range: All (all grades; children with parental supervision)

 

This website provides a glimpse of the over 20,000 fish, amphibians, reptiles, marine mammals, and birds living at the National Aquarium in Baltimore, Maryland.

When arriving at the site, you’ll see: 

  • Exhibits – Learn about the exhibit and the animals in that exhibit.
  • Animals – You can search for an animal by type, range or exhibit or scroll over the animal you are interested in for a brief description. Then “Learn More” to get an overview and quick facts on each animal including: 
    • Range
    • Diet
    • Size
    • Population Status
    • Predators

You can also see information on each caretaker. Here is a list of some of the animals at the aquarium: 

  • Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphin
  • Blue Blubber Jelly
  • Emperor Angelfish
  • Green Sea Turtle
  • Laughing Kookabura
  • Percula Clownfish
  • And so many more!
  • Live Streams – Black Tip Reef, Jellies Invasion, and Pacific Coral Reef. When arriving at the chosen webcam page, not only can you see the exhibit in real time (only live during business hours), but you can learn about the location and some of the animals that are part of the exhibit.

It would be fun to challenge your students to find the listed animals while watching the live feed.
