During our 1st Grade Marine Unit (March 23rd-27th), your child will be introduced to the life of a marine biologist. They will begin their adventure by investigating marine animals, their adaptations and life cycles. Students will be introduced to the perch, dogfish shark, squid and sea star. They will learn about the characteristics of each animal, their habitat, how they move and what they eat. We will have a dissection lab with the help of our 7th graders that attended Catalina Island Marine Institute in August. We will wrap up this fun and fast paced unit with a field trip to the Denver Aquarium. Please look for an upcoming STEM email that has all the details.
