NPS Photo/Andrew Rosales – The contents of the Cabrillo Traveling Trunk, including books, games, and DVDs.
- Intertidal Guess Who: This game helps students learn more about the organisms that inhabit the Rocky Intertidal. This is a science-focused spin on the classic board game where players vie to find out what organism their opponent has.
- DVD Collection: There are titles on topics including plants, ocean ecosystems, and the climate.
- Books: The book collection has selections on Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo, lighthouses, tidepools, shells, kelp forests, and plants.
- Biodiversity Web Game: The trunk contains two web games. There is a terrestrial (land) version and an intertidal version. These games build understanding of how the biodiversity of an ecosystem is interconnected. In this activity, students will be able to see and feel the impacts and connectivity of species within these ecosystems.
- Native Plant Matching Game: This game introduces students to the top ten most prominent native plants here at Cabrillo National Monument. Players turn over cards and try to match pictures to names.
