The Prepare Students section will get your class ready for the Marine Reserves virtual field trip.
The Marine Reserves field trip experience is made up of a number of components which take place during the field trip week.
Components in the table below are updated daily during the Marine Reserves field trip. They remain on this website and can be used after the date of the live field trip.
|Ambassadors||Classes can send an ambassador (small toy) on the field trip with the LEARNZ Field Trip teacher. Daily ambassador updates can be read by all enrolled classes.|
|Web conferences||Students put questions live to experts who are on location during the field trip. Web conferences can also be watched and listened to live via the Internet or replayed from the recording.|
|Diaries||Andrew the LEARNZ Field Trip Teacher writes a detailed diary for students to read, accompanied by 10 captioned images and panoramas for each day of the field trip - including the travel day on Monday.|
|Experts and careers||Students meet each expert involved in this field trip via a profile page and short video. Potential career and training paths can also be explored on these pages.|
|Photo gallery||All website and field trip photos are available in one easy-to-use location, where students can browse and select to further their interest and learning.|
|Videos||Short, curriculum-rich videos are made on each day of the field trip. They are edited and uploaded in the evening for viewing the following day.|
