2023 Dates & Topics:

September 26, 2023: Sea Turtles

The life of a sea turtle is a complicated, challenging journey! From the incubation and hatchling stages, all the way to the mature adult stage, a sea turtle’s life cycle is full of twists and turns. Our Sea Squirts will have the opportunity to explore the life stages of a sea turtle in an engaging book, craft, and sensory experience.

October 3, 2023: How to Hide an Octopus (morning session only)

Octopuses have a great ability to blend in with their surroundings by using camouflage. We will explore many different marine creatures that can blend in with their surroundings. Sea Squirts will explore what it means to camouflage through a fun activity and scavenger hunt in our sea-to-shore aquarium.
October 10, 2023: Dolphins

Through the story “A Dolphins Wish” we will explore not just dolphins but also the threats they face from pollution. Sea Squirts will have the chance to “clean up” the ocean to help dolphins and animals like them, through the use of a sensory bin. To top it all off we will also get to spend some time viewing the dolphins in our classroom’s underwater viewing window.
October 17, 2023: Hermit crabs

Through this fun story “A House for Hermit Crab”, sea squirts will be introduced to a very small but interesting animal, a hermit crab! Sea Squirts will explore what it means to be a hermit crab by creating their own hermit crab shell and getting to see all the different hermit crabs we have in our habitats in our aquarium.
October 24, 2023: Sharks

Did you know that there are over 500 species of sharks in the ocean? Sea Squirts will get to learn about just a few of those species through the fun story “I Am the Shark”. They will get to create a sensory bottle with their favorite type of shark from the story and get to look at the sharks we have here at Marineland.
October 31, 2023: Coral Kingdom

Coral reefs can be amazing places full of beauty and diversity, but they are very important for our oceans too! Join us to explore the largest coral reef in the world through the story “The Coral Kingdom”.
