We are going to take a look at different species of whales that call the ocean home through the book “If I Were a Whale”. Then you will get to choose which type of whale you would like to be and complete a “whaley” fun craft!

Explore the life cycle of plastic from how it is made to its different uses through the book “Life of a Plastic Bottle” and see how we can help the plastic problem the oceans face. Then we will upcycle our plastic bottles into something new! Join us to find out different things you can make out of a plastic bottle!

Instead of looking just at Dolphins, Sharks, or Sea turtles this time, we are going to explore a variety of marine life through the story “Somewhere in the Ocean’. Then we are going to work together to make our own ocean full of different interesting animals!
February 14, 2024: Fish
Fish are some of the most important animals in our oceans, but they can do some of the funkiest things! Join us to explore the world of fish with the story “Fabulous Fishes”. You will even get to make your own fish and discover the fish that call Marineland home!
February 21, 2024: Seashells
We have all at one point seen sea shells on the beach or even collected them. We are going to explore all of the different types of shells and what different animals use them for. We will explore them through the book “Seashells: More than a Home” and then get to touch and feel different shells through a sensory experience.
February 28, 2024: Marine Rescue
Many organizations help out marine animals that ended up in places they weren’t meant to be! Explore how we help marine animals through the story of a rescued Sea Otter in the book “Pup 681- A Sea Otter Rescue Story”. Then we will check out how we would go about helping a marine mammal if we ever came across one in need!
