Note, 12/10/2013: TransitPeople is closing up shop! Please see the news page for more information.
This second TransitPeople guide is intended to accompany our visits to the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach. Teachers and kids love this destination, and have requested frequent trips there. This guide gives us something to share with the children during the Blue Line ride to and from the aquarium stop at First and Pine. If it piques their interest, they may want to take it home and read it by themselves later. That's the idea!
If you're chaperoning kids to the aquarium, please also check out the aquarium's terrific collection of online materials, which you can view and download in their comprehensive education section. And always pick up an aquarium Passport booklet when you visit. They're free at the aquarium's front desk!
