Summer Seashore Adventures

Cabrillo Marine Aquarium offers a five-day summer Science at the Seashore workshop called “Crab Shells and Native Tales”.  Designed for 3rd and 4th grade students, this session is offered from 9 a.m. to 12 noon, Monday, August 6 through Friday, August 10.

Throughout the week, students will have an opportunity to observe animals in the aquarium, explore nearby coastal habitats, participate in ecological games and use a variety of scientific tools (microscopes, plankton nets, binoculars, etc.) to investigate live marine animals.

Students will have a chance to observe animal behavior as they hold hermit crabs, feed barnacles, go crab fishing, and more.  They will have fun discovering the marvelous mud at the salt marsh, and learning about cultural connections to the ocean including native peoples’ use of ocean resources.  Each participant will create take-home projects.
