Marine Biology (Ages 6-9) - DAY 3, Wednesday

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.

Today is Wednesday, July 8, 2020.

The resources for today are posted below.

Explore the zones of the ocean in a submarine!

Think about these questions:

  • How is each zone different?

  • What kinds of animals can survive there?

What is life like in the Mariana Trench, the deepest part of the ocean?

Which of these creepy creatures from the deep is your favorite?

Here is an extra craft! Create a sea urchin! A sea urchin is a spiny creature that lives in many different zones.
