coral reefs

Goose's science group is studying Oceans this month.
I taught the Coral Reef class this past Wednesday.
To get ready for the class, Goose and I made these melted crayon and watercolor

Each class is using this world map made by one of the other students.
The kids labeled different reefs in my class.

For our activity each kid made thier own reef.
We discussed how the surface area of the reef grows as more and more corals grow.

Goose's reef.

The previous class was on Tidal Zones.
Goose made this sea urchin out of clay, toothpicks and spray paint to go with the lesson.
Tomorrow we are visiting the Fitzerald Tidepool Reserve in Half Moon Bay.
Hoping to get some great photos!
Our next two classes are the pelagic zone and deep sea vents.
I love the strange creatures of the vents!
Looking forward to a fun weekend.
How about you?
