Tijuana Estuary Explorers
“Tijuana Estuary Explorers” is an in-class and field trip program, targeted at 3rd – 6th grade, that meets state standards and incorporates reading, writing and science into four comprehensive activities about the Tijuana Estuary and its watershed.
Using a personalized field journal, students will read the field notes written by two characters, Pablo and Silvia Hernandez, as they explore the watershed and estuary that the students too will soon visit. Along with their journal notes, students will find pages to start their own journal, using the questions and activities provided.
A mandatory 3 hour teacher training is required for all teachers who wish to participate in this program. The training will guide teachers through the student journal and teacher’s guide, which encompasses the in-class and field portions of the program. Training sessions are held periodically based on interest. If you have a group of four or more teachers that are interested in a training, we will work with you to coordinate a session. Contact Empress Holliday at 619-575-3613 ext.306 or with any questions or to schedule a training.
The next Tijuana Estuary Explorers training will be in a hybrid format on September 12,13, and 16, 2022. Download the flyer for registration information here.
