April 26 - 30

We ended our Earth Week celebration with a litter walk around our community.

😍Ms. Webb!!! We know her!!!!!😍

We learned about the Ocean and the animals that live there.

We searched our water bead tub for animals that we might find under the sea!
Amelia found a fish.

Derek found a penguin.

Otis found a dolphin.

Teigen found a shark.

Max found an octopus.

Hali found a seal.

Dmitri found a hammerhead shark.

Johnny found a star fish.

Did you know that there are five layers of the ocean?
They are the trenches, the abyss,the midnight zone, the twilight zone and the sunlight zone.

We made our own layers of the ocean in a jar. 
Trenches - corn syrup
Abyss - dish soap
Midnight - water dyed green
Twilight - vegetable oil dyed blue
Sunlight - rubbing alcohol dyed light blue

We also learned about what animals you may find in these ocean zones.

Trenches - tube worms or sea cucumbers
Abyss - black swallower fish or angler fish
Midnight - viper fish, sea star or an octopus
Twilight - crab, squid or a cat shark
Sunlight - dolphin, whale, jelly fish or a turtle
