School Programs

Due to COVID-19 closures and restrictions, on-site field trips to Gumbo Limbo Nature Center have been temporarily suspended.  

In response to feedback from teachers and School District personnel, Gumbo Limbo's educators are preparing monthly pre-recorded virtual field trips based on PBC Science Scope and Sequence topics, benchmarks, and vocabulary. Teachers and students can access these resources from the classroom or from home. Each lesson has an accompanying activity to engage the students and reinforce the student targets. Links to videos and activities for grades 1, 3, and 5 are below.  

Need material for other grades? 

We have joined forces with the Science Explorium to provide lessons for all other elementary grades. The Science Explorium is preparing pre-recorded virtual field trips for grades K, 2, and 4, also based on PBC Science Scope and Sequence. You will find these links on their School Programs web page.
