Self Directed visits are an excellent way to get your students engaged in marine life, with the flexibility to customize your day in a way that works best for you. The Vancouver Aquarium is home to over 5,000 animals of over 750 different species. There are endless ways to imagine your day.
This page is a asset for you to use throughout your Self Directed Visit. Here you will find resources for planning your visit, activities for your students, as well as follow up activities for your class. Students can apply what they learned during their visit by contributing to the Blogs, Discussion Boards, or Gallery.

The Plastic Wise Challenge
#BePlasticWise provides students and teachers a chance to be part of Ocean Wise's new plastic wise campaign. We are asking you to bring the pledge into your classrooms and learn how plastic is affecting our environment and how that affects us as a society. Lets start the discussion about why we need to take steps to decrease our plastic usage in our everyday life and how we can achieve these goals together. This challenge gets students to reflect on their plastic usage to see how making small changes in their everyday life can make a big impact in their community!
