Educational Horizons students in grades 4, 5, and 6 took a recent trip to Long Point State Park to join the Brevard Zoo for a study of the Indian River Lagoon called Lagoon Quest. This culminating activity completed their studies at school and work towards conserving and preserving our fragile ecosystem.
About Lagoon Quest
Lagoon Quest is designed to integrate real-life experience with 4th grade curriculum covering Sunshine State Standards in science, social studies, math, and language arts using the rich environmental resources of the Indian River Lagoon. The program enables students to gain an appreciation and awareness of the fragile estuarine environment passing through our community and prepares students to make informed decisions that influence the quality of life in our area.
Lagoon Quest creates a sense of pride and feeling of ownership and responsibility in children so natural treasures such as the Indian River Lagoon will remain healthy and vibrant for generations to come.
Brevard Zoo is grateful to be a part of this unique program and would like to acknowledge and thank the Brevard Public School System for their partnership in the Lagoon Quest program.
