KIDS for the BAY will bring the San Francisco Bay estuary into your classroom! Our program provides hands-on science experiments, animal and plant investigations, and activities that are aligned with Next Generation Science Standards. It includes three hours of instruction and a Teacher Activity Package.

“The entire program is well thought out and planned. My students learned a lot!”
— Catherine Spinner, Second Grade Teacher, Morello Park Elementary School, Martinez

Bay Estuary Scientists (Grades 1-6):

  • Create a three-dimensional bay estuary model;
  • Experiment with fresh water and salt water to discover the unique properties of an estuary;
  • Find your place in the San Francisco Bay Area using large, full color maps;
  • Study bay food chains and investigate animals and plants that live in the Bay, including fish, crabs, and seaweed; and
  • Learn about opportunities to help protect and restore your local watershed.

“[The program was] very applicable and connected well with our science content standards.”
— Cameron Beatty, Fourth Grade Teacher, Jefferson Elementary School, San Leandro

We also offer Environmental Action Projects in the classroom.
