Salmon Fest Curriculum

Pre-trip and post-trip work and information for Salmon Fest School Days

Drop-In Activities

These activities require no registration, and are typically open to all classes every year. Your students can visit any of these activities throughout the day, as your schedule allows. Working on the pre-trip work in the curriculum will help your students more fully engage with the activity at Salmon Fest.

Sign-Up Activities

Depending on how early you register and your arrival and departure times, your class will be assigned a few sign-up activities. We strongly encourage you to look through the curricula for each of the activities on your class’s schedule. Each includes a description of the activity at Salmon Fest, as well as pre- and post-trip class work that will enrich and build on the field trip experience.
