Shedd Aquarium has launched is new website at http://www.sheddaquarium.org

Make sure to stop by and look at the "Teach and Learn" section of the
website, where we have a wide array of resources available for Educators of
all experience levels, such as:

Self-guided visits
Visiting Shedd Aquarium on a field trip can be a wonderful experience for
students, teachers, and chaperones. From Illinois to the Amazon, your group
will see animals from all over the world during your visit.  
Classroom and Laboratory Programs 
Add depth to your field trip by including one of our interactive classroom
or laboratory programs. All programs are held in our Aquatic Science Center
(ASC) and are carefully aligned to the ISBE Learning Standards for Science.

Outreach Programs
Make a splash at your school with a visit from Shedd! Each of our four
auditorium programs can serve between 100 and 250 students. The
presentations are tailored for the specific grade levels listed below.
Students attending these programs will receive a pass good for three
children and two adults to visit Shedd for free to promote family centered
learning about aquatic life and environments.  
Activity Guides
Don't forget Shedd's wonderful series of activity guides designed to augment
your curricula. Geared to specific grade levels, the publications merge the
Aquarium's expertise in engaging young minds on the topic of aquatic science
with the Illinois State Goals in Science and the National Education Science
Discovery Boxes 
Designed to compliment each of our activity guides, discovery boxes contain
books, artifacts, models and other learning resources for your students to
