In the Discovery lab, students from Mrs. Liguidi’s first grade class learned about the blue crab–the signature species of the Chesapeake Bay.
We looked at a short movie clip of a blue crab eating and noticed how it uses its claws to pinch, hold, then bring its prey up to its mouth. We also learned that the blue crab has several kinds of legs: paddle, walking, and claws. We made our own models of the crab by using our hands and blue paint!
Soon, we will create a habitat for our blue crabs. Enjoy the pictures below!
