Class Summary: Ever wondered what it would be like to live in the sea as a fish, mermaid, or sea urchin? This course plunges children into the deep world of ocean life. They will explore several elements of the ocean including the various plants, ocean ecosystems, and different types of animals. In additional they will learn to classify ocean creatures and learn all about their physical traits including the comparison of shark and whale teeth!
Educational Value: The ocean extends well beyond the beautiful bluish green tones, and large waves that we see when we go to the beach. This course will take children on an explorative journey into the depths of the sea to see what life beyond the waves has to offer. They will learn sustainable fishing practices, analyze sea creatures, and see just how animals of the ocean are linked in a new ending food chain. Children will ultimately walk away knowing how important the ocean is for human life.
