Video: Learning is Fun at Educator's Open House in Atlanta


It's that time of the year again, Educator's Open House!  Three attractions, World of Coca-Cola, National Center for Civil and Human Rights, and Georgia Aquarium opened their doors to educators for a free day of learning educational programming they provide for teachers and their students.  Educators can get help planning field trips to these exciting museums during the school year.


I got to be like an educator for the day being able to visit the three attractions as well. (Make sure to check on my previous years at Educator's Open House) Here is what they all have to offer:

Expand your students understanding of Aquatic Ecosystems with Instructor-Led Programs.


Their engaging instructor-led programs provide focused learning opportunities where students can ask questions, collaborate, and problem-solve with the guidance of our Georgia Aquarium Educators. Programs are aligned to Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE) and include a grade-specific, downloadable Teacher Guide with pre-and post-visit activities. Instructor-led programs are 60 minutes in length. At the end of the program, groups will have the remainder of their time to enjoy the various galleries and presentations at the Aquarium.


Michelle and Lauren went on a field trip to Georgia Aquarium in Elementary school and loved the behind the scenes experience.  They came home with a wealth of knowledge and passion for aquatic life.

Educator's Open House was a success again with teachers from all around the city ready to plan their school year with educational fun for their students.  I can tell students will have exciting, hands-on experiences during the school year.
