Petco's Aquademics Program

Local Petco stores offer fish tanks for free to fourth and fifth grade teachers. They will bring the tank to your classroom along with lesson plans. The below information is available at

"Aquademics® is a hands-on, minds-on enrichment opportunity that brings learning to life for children, whether they are sitting in the classroom or gathered with family members around the aquarium in the living room.

Now it's easy to incorporate the fun of an aquarium into your 4th or 5th grade students' learning experience.

Aquademics can help meet state learning standards in Science, Math, Language Arts, Social Studies, Ecology, Writing and more.

Lesson Plans
Use the aquarium to create interest in a range of subjects from biology to creative writing, from math to social studies and more.

Resource Materials
Use materials such as worksheets to give each student the opportunity for a hands-on, minds-on learning experience.

Cash for College
One of your students could win $1,000 to save for college!

Special Offers
Money-saving offers are available for Aquademics teachers.

Bring your class in to your local participating PETCO store for an unforgettable learning experience. Signups for the upcoming school year begin in August. For more information, visit your nearest PETCO store. "

Each store has a limited number of tanks so teachers are encouraged to contact their local store as early as possible.
