Students in grade 4 studied the Indian River Lagoon habitat. Next they went on a field trip to investigate this fragile ecosystem. They were very surprised to see the different species of life in our waterway.
This hands on experience will remind them to help preserve our rivers and estuaries in Florida.
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.
