Updated: Jul 9, 2020

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 Thursday, July 9, 2020.

The resources for today are posted below.

Today you will work on your animal research! Choose an ocean animal and learn all about it. Where does it live? What does it eat? How does it stay safe?

Create a picture, painting, or sculpture of your animal and be ready to share about it on Friday!
