New England Aquarium

The New England Aquarium is a fun and engaging experience for your class, and can help reinforce classroom lessons with real, hands-on learning! Explore the Aquarium as a group and dive into the diversity of marine habitats from around the world. Your students can touch the smooth skin of a cownose ray in the Shark and Ray Touch Tank, or marvel at the bustling colony of African, rockhopper, and little blue penguins. Presentations will help students connect with the major issues facing our oceans, and help your class better understand the role of humans in helping to preserve and promote these treasured ocean resources. Additional field trip activities, programs, and teacher guides are available. Visit us at to learn more.
