Brevard County Barrier Island Center


According to numerous studies done on child education, children learn best from experience.  On UNICEF website it states that "children learn best by doing, using their senses, exploring their environment of people, things, places and events.  They learn from first-hand and concrete experiences."  

For our sea turtle unit, we went to Brevard County Barrier Island Center which is located in the Archie Carr National Wildlife Refuge in Melbourne Beach.  It has many interactive exhibits which provide educational hands-on experiences for children and adults.  We went during Tour de Turtles where two loggerhead turtles named Leonora & Turpac were released back into the ocean. 

 It was such a wonderful experience!!!
