A specialised program for Grade 7 & 9 focussing on body adaptations,
specialised cells and human impacts.
This program uses some of the lesser known deep sea species as the basis for some thoughtful discussions on adaptations, survival and specialisation of body structures. We also include an activity where students devise and draw their own deep sea creature.
Students also have the opportunity to touch our beautiful live marine animals at the end of the program, including sea stars, sea urchins, hermit crabs and sea cucumbers.
Program Name: Ocean Oddities
Age Group: Grade 7, 8 and 9
