Nature Club - January 31, February 1

Since I just got back from scuba diving in Mexico, I was inspired to bring my collection of sea creatures for the kids to look at. Some of them had already learned about animals of the ocean and had thoughtful questions. It was very new to others. Everyone was extremely interested in the shells, sponges,corals, starfish and sand dollars they looked at. I think they really appreciated how interesting and beautiful ocean creatures are.
