Scholastic Explorers

Students can set off on virtual trips to explore new worlds, from the rainforests of Costa Rica to the oceans near New Zealand.


1–2, 3–5, 6–8, 9–12

Activity Type

  • Activities and Games

“Scholastic Explorers,” in partnership with Earthwatch Institute, gives students (grades 4–8) the unique opportunity to explore new worlds through reading activities, photos, interviews with scientists, and more. Additional interactive activities challenge students to be explorers in their own backyards.

  • Through on-the-scene field reports, photographs, interviews with scientists and others on the site, students will discover firsthand how Earthwatch teams study animals in their environment and work to preserve Endangered Ecosystems (Grades 4–8).
  • Ocean Life (Grades 4–8) shares how human activities impact two specific ocean animals: sea turtles in Costa Rica and dolphins in New Zealand. In conjunction with the Earthwatch Institute, students will “visit” two field sites.
  • Students can also observe ecosystems in their own backyard and neighborhood.
