Education Programs

LGA educator exploring the watershed model with kids in school programThe Lake George Association’s education programs teach students and the public about the Lake George watershed, water quality, and ecology. Bring your students or family on field trips to the lake or let us come to your school with structured classroom lessons and activities that meet established science curriculums.  Or take advantage of other lesson plans and resources available to you, including our annual Lake George Bookmark Design Contest, which has been updated for the 2020 school year!

Field Trips

The LGA’s field trips and outdoor education programs align with the New York State Core Curriculum and deliver an outdoor, hands-on learning experience for your students.

In-School Programs

Lake George Association education staff have developed 13 different programs across grades K-12, all following the New York State Core Curriculum. Bringing the outdoors inside, these programs are designed to be taught in the classroom, allowing students to explore Lake George all year long. Many of these programs are also available to scout events, summer camps, after-school programs, or other groups interested in active learning activities related to Lake George.

All programs are designed to be about an hour in length and can be conducted with a maximum of 30 students. Programs are adaptable for different classroom settings or lengths of time. All supplies and equipment needed will be brought for each program. Programs can be delivered as stand-alone programs or as pre- or post- activities for a Floating Classroom field trip:
