DSC06369 DSC06372 To continue our study of reptiles, the Kindergarteners learned about sea turtles. Did you know that all six types of sea turtles found in the U.S. are either threatened or endangered? Did you know that some sea turtles migrate? Did you know that approximately 1 out of every 100 will make it to adulthood? Students visited two centers while they were in the Discovery Lab. The first center involved making a turtle headband. The students glued photos of the types of food the Loggerhead sea turtle eats on to the headband. The second center was a role playing activity. The students pretended they were turtles and experienced many of the dangers that sea turtles encounter; such as predators, nets, trash that looks like food, etc. Link to all photosDSC06366 DSC06659 DSC06390 DSC06661 DSC06666 DSC06397
