FREE Virtual Field Trip with Philippe Cousteau!

Philippe CousteauDiscovery Education and Education Service Center Region XI are proud to present Texas educators a captivating Virtual Field Trip for Texas elementary school students.  Join Philippe Cousteau, grandson of the legendary Jacques Cousteau and Discovery Education Chief Spokesperson for Environmental Education, as he takes your students to the Seattle Aquarium to explore animal adaptation in the ocean and the mystery of the coral reefs.

Hosted by Region XI and Discovery, the field trip is totally supported by Lesson plans and activities that are already aligned to the TEKS. After signing up, teachers will be sent these materials in advance of this event. There will be a segment for early elementary and one for secondary elementary classrooms.

After meeting Philippe this week at TCEA, the Texas DEN Leadership committee was very impressed with his ability to communicate with teachers and students. This is an exciting opportunity that is only open to Texas elementary schools. Spread the word and take advantage so we can get more of these special events for Texas students!
