Marine Biology (Ages 3-5) - DAY 1, Monday

Updated: Jul 6, 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's craft is a jellyfish! Watch the videos to see Ms. Claire model the process for making your jellyfish. We can't wait to see how they turn out!

Part 1

You might notice that Ms. Claire's jellyfish in Part 2 is different from her jellyfish in Part 1. This is because she made a specialized Part 1 video for each age group. The steps in Part 1 have been modified to be preschool-appropriate.
