California State Parks Online Resources for Teachers and Students (PORTS)
California State Parks is proud to present PORTS. PORTS provides K12 students the opportunity to connect with the diverse cultural, natural, and historic resources of our State through virtual field-trip experiences.
This year, we'll be providing Home Learning Programs for K-12 communities learning from home and On-Demand Programs for connections with students in their digital or in-person classrooms.
Connecting your students is easy. Follow these simple steps:
Review the PORTS Home Learning Program calendar above and select the program you want to share with your students.
Click on the calendar event to view the Zoom registration link. This link will need to be shared with your students. You can highlight, copy (Ctrl+C), and paste (Ctrl+V) the link into an email to your students or share it in your Google classroom.
Follow the link to register yourself for the Zoom. You will need to provide your name and email address.
Zoom will send you and all students who have registered an automated email with a link to join the broadcast.
Click the link for the broadcast at the designated start time.
PLEASE NOTE STEP #3: If you want your whole class to join, each student will need to register independently. Student names and email addresses will not be shared or used for any other purpose. If you would prefer a more personal experience for your students, please schedule an On-Demand Program!
