Day 87 - Kindergarten Visits Aquarium - Mrs. Hoyt - Pine Glen Kindergarten

This post first appeared on Mrs. Hoyt's Blog

We had a wonderful day exploring life sciences today at the New England Aquarium!  Students used all their senses as they listened to touched, smelled and saw a wide range of reptiles, fish, birds and more.  

We traveled to the top of the giant tank to see Myrtle, the 90-year-old sea turtle. 

Students rolled up sleeves and dunked hands in the giant touch tank.  They were able to touch sting rays and sharks!

Students were lined up and mesmerized by all they witnessed!

We even saw the skeleton of a giant whale!

Aquarium staff helped us to explore the creatures found at a tide pool!

A special thank you to the Pine Glen PTO!  The PTO supports the kindergarten program by supplying us with t-shirts to wear for our trips and helped to offset some of our transportation expenses!
