New England Aquarium

Today we were treated to a special program today from the New England Aquarium. Maris and Julia, from the aquarium, did an amazing job of helping us to imagine we were at the beach searching in the tide pools for small creatures. We learned about snails, hermit crabs, clams, mussels, sea stars, and more. They brought many friends from the aquarium for us to hold and touch. Although many friends were nervous at first to touch the animals, everyone quickly warmed up to them and had a great time. We would like to thank the PTO for sponsoring this program for kindergarten.

Be sure to check out the New England Aquarium for some family activities for home and special events happening. (a great day trip for April vacation!)
