This page provides some of the many resources available to teachers to help them learn more about the Flint RiverQuarium and to prepare their students for a future visit.
The staff at the Flint RiverQuarium plan workshops throughout the year, most of which offer PLU credit. Workshop participants can learn about the creatures inhabiting the Flint River and much of the Southeast and how to incorporate them into lesson plans utilizing the provided activities.
Teacher workshops focusing on integrating inquiry practices through the teaching of science material from the Georgia Performance Standards will be held at the Flint RiverQuarium. All teachers can earn 1 PLU per workshop for certification purposes.
The workshops include an Imagination Theater screening, tours of all of our exhibits including the new Aviary, content behind the standards covered, presentations on keeping animals in the classroom, hands-on activities at our touch tank and fish tanks, activity hand-outs and lesson plan development for utilization in the classroom.
