Station Topics

Teacher may select 2 different topics to be presented in one day

Bay Fish (bony fish & sharks)

Students closely observe and touch live fishes and a leopard shark from the San Francisco Bay Estuary. They compare and contrast bony and cartilaginous fishes, and the adaptations that help them to survive in an aquatic environment.

Bay & Ocean Invertebrates

Students explore and examine invertebrates found in the San Francisco Bay Estuary and Pacific Ocean. They touch and identify creatures from each habitat and compare and contrast the animals’ adaptations for survival in their respective environments.

Marshes & Mudflats

Students discover the importance of salt marsh habitats to the San Francisco Bay ecosystem and to the migratory birds that use them. They also explore the fishes and invertebrates that rely on mudflats, and the relationship between the marshes and mudflats.

Rocky Intertidal (bony fish & invertebrates)

Students focus on the influences of tides on the rocky shore, and the animals that survive in the harsh conditions of the tidepool habitat. They handle live fishes and invertebrates, and examine how they are adapted to life in the rocky intertidal.

Marine Mammals

Students discover what all mammals have in common, and how marine mammals are uniquely suited to surviving in aquatic environments. They explore artifacts and discuss the feeding and survival strategies of different types of mammals.

Sandy Beach 

The Sandy Beach habitat-focused program examines on life above and below the sand. Students learn how animals like sea turtles use the beach to lay their eggs, while others such as snails and sand crabs rely on the protection of burrowing beneath the sand.

Kelp Forest

Students study the structure of kelp, and about the rich community that depends upon kelp forest habitat. They touch live animals and explore artifacts that demonstrate the importance of kelp both ecologically and for human uses.

Forms and Information

Inland Voyages deliver living marine animals directly to the class with the Marine Science Institute’s mobile aquarium. Students learn about local marine environments and the organisms that live in them through a combination of hands-on investigation and inquiry-based learning activities. We offer seven different program options focused on habitats or animals, which can be customized with a theme to fit each class’s needs.
