The South Campus went to the Seattle Aquarium today for their final field trip of the school year.
It was a great success. They started the day in the classroom with one of the Seattle Aquarium’s Biologist for the Hand-on Tidepool Wonders class. In the class they learned all about marine invertebrates (animals without backbones) and then had a chance to study and touch these amazing living creatures. The kids had a great time sticking their hands in the icy cold water and touching many cool creature including starfish, sea cucumbers, crabs, and mollusks. Once the class ended, the kids had a chance to explore the rest rest of the aquarium. We even were able to see the harbor seals eat their lunch: they were definitely a bit hit with everyone.
Before heading back to the bus, many of the students took a ride on the Seattle Great Wheel, located next door to the aquarium. It was a memorable day. A perfect way to end a great year of South Campus field trips!
