Marine Biology (Ages 6-9) - DAY 2, Tuesday

Welcome to Marine Biology Week!

We're so excited to dive into exploring the ocean with you this week. We will be using this platform to post extra resources each day for you and your child to explore. This includes videos, songs, crafts, learning activities, and websites. Please keep checking back to see what is available, as we will not be sending updates via email. Use your discretion to decide if your child will need help reading or accessing any of these materials.


Here is our Zoom meeting link: Meeting ID: 712 9626 8457 Password: 7sCMri

Today is Tuesday, July 7, 2020.

The resources for today are posted below.

Travel down through the ocean layers to the deepest part of the ocean! The trenches!

Here are some questions to think about as you watch the video:

  • How do animals in the deeper zones get food?

  • How do animals in the deeper zone adapt?

  • What do animals far down look like? How are they different from animals at the top?

  • What happens as you swim further down?

  • Why do marine biologists need special equipment to travel far down in the ocean?

Watch this video to learn about the Zones of the ocean!

This song will help you remember the 5 oceans of the world!

How deep do you think the ocean really is? Watch this video to find out!

Visit this link to learn more about different ocean habitats. A habitat is a place where plants and animals live! What is your habitat?

Today's craft is a Saltwater Scene! Watch the videos to see Ms. Claire model the process for making your craft with watercolors and salt. We can't wait to see how they turn out!
