Week one we covered a lot of the basic information from the differences between reptiles and amphibians down to the life cycles of amphibians...we saved sea turtles for week 2.
You can find this print out below by clicking on the picture!
We wrapped up week one by observing our tadpoles that we purchased at our local fish store in town. The store owner wasn't certain which type we received but I'm guessing bullfrogs because almost a month has gone by and they still look like tadpoles!!! haha...well, they'll be fun to watch even if it does take a year or two!
We purchase tadpole food and the kids are having fun seeing them week after week!
We discussed the 7 main Sea Turtles:
- Green Sea Turtle
- Leatherback Sea Turtle
- Loggerhead Sea Turtle
- Hawksbill Sea Turtle
- Kemps Ridley Sea Turtle
- Olive Ridley Sea Turtle
- Flatback Sea Turtle
For the kids who finished early, they could color their "Eight Turtle of the Sea" Coloring Page!
We added our Sea Turtles to our Ocean Zones! Hoping to have our wall filled up by the end of our
Sea Creatures Study!
