What is the most reasonably priced field trip in Orange County?
A day of exploration and education at The ExplorOcean Newport Harbor Nautical Museum in Newport Beach for only $5!
Two weeks ago, I led a group of 85 homeschoolers to ExplorOcean to participate in a variety of hands-on activities and learning experiences including:
A NEWPORT HARBOR CRUISE & SEA LIONS OBSERVATION
We set sail for an ocean discovery on a 45-minute boat ride in the Newport Harbor where we saw sea lions up close and personal.
THE OCEAN LITERACY CENTER
ExplorOcean has several areas to explore in their Ocean Literacy Center. My daughter enjoyed the marine life touch tank the best.
THE SCIENCE COURTYARD
We did a science experiment and tested what would happen if you add different types of materials to water.
THE ADVENTURE OUTPOST
Crustaceans Off The Balboa Pier
ExplorOcean also hosts weekly preschool classes called Sea Tales and Family Science Saturdays.
I can not praise ExplorOcean enough! To schedule your next field trip or tour, please visit www.explorocean.org.
Happy Field Tripping,
