Developed in conjunction with the Saguaro National Park BioBlitz celebration, the Electronic Field Trip consists of:

  • 5 on-line GAMES that allow students to explore the plant and animal life of Saguaro National Park in fun and engaging ways;

  • 5 coordinated LESSON plans that tie in to the themes of the Games and act as classroom extensions -- each plan offers suggestions for in-class and outdoor activities that you can do in your school;

  • a 50-minute video SHOW that was produced live at the BioBlitz and takes students to areas all over the park to explore its many environments.
