Ocean Oddities - Gr 5, 6
Ocean Oddities investigates the specialised features and adaptations of some of the strangest animals living in the deepest parts of the ocean!
The weird and wonderful creatures that live in the worlds oceans are fascinating!
During a multimedia presentation, students will learn about the properties of deep ocean environments, aswell as the challenges faced by the animals who inhabit these regions.
We focus on several specific animals in the presentation and identify the adaptations and features that help them survive in these extreme environments.
At the end of the presentation, students have the opportunity to touch some of our beautiful live marine animals such as stars, urchins and sea cucumbers!
An engaging and interactive program that will leave your students excited (and educated!) about the amazing diversity of life in our oceans!
