K-12 School Programs

Engage students in real-world science and math while learning how marine animals are trained at SeaWorld to perform amazing behaviors.

Your program begins at 9:30 a.m. and ends at 1:30 p.m. The program includes:

  • An educational animal presentation.
  • Self-guided viewing of SeaWorld's animal habitats. On the day of the visit, each adult Chaperone receives a Field Trip Guide to facilitate learning.
  • A Teacher's Guide is provided prior to your visit. This guide, filled with pre- and post-visit activities, provides additional educational value to your SeaWorld field trip. Math curriculum for grades K-8 available by request.

SeaWorld's Instructional Field Trip program supports California Science Content Standards.

Special education groups are invited to participate in the Instructional Field Trip program. Or, you may request an In-Depth Tour.
