Alaska SeaLife Center

Our kindergarten students are enjoying a visit with the Alaska SeaLife Center as they learn about sea birds. For 55 minutes, the classes learn through various means, watching actual fish tanks of swimming sea lions and harbor seals, video of specific birds, parts of birds (wing size, webbed feet, beaks, placement of feet--further back on body than regular birds, which allows them to swim easier), worksheet of bird parts, and finally, making a clay tufted puffin. Wow!
