Sea stars, urchins and friends
October 2016–June 2017
Meet five different Puget Sound seashore animals: sea stars, sea urchins, hermit crabs, sea anemones and clams. Through discussion, movement and song, students will learn fun facts about the animals and their habitat while reviewing colors and numbers. Explore even more during the free-choice activity time that includes a live animal station, felt board and puppet play, a reading and puzzle corner, and a letter-matching activity. This introductory marine science program is perfect for preschools, Head Start classes, day care centers and other groups of young children.
