Kindergarten Living Planet Aquarium Field Trip

Stingrays, sharks, penguins, these are a few of the aquatic animals the Kindergarten children at East Meadows Elementary experienced on their field trip to the Living Planet Aquarium.  Students loaded the buses and headed to Sandy, Utah to see the Living Planet Aquarium on January 6 and 7.   The morning session of kindergarten attended on Thursday and the afternoon session on Friday.   A Naturalist talked to them about sea life and animals that live on the land as they were on a “Sunken Ship.”   As the children walked around they were able to touch a stingray, of course the stinger had been removed.  They watched penguins splash and play in the water.  The highlight for some were the sharks and jellyfish.  There were sea horses, an octopus, an Anaconda snake, some frogs, an alligator and many more colorful and fun creatures to look at.  This activity finished up their unit on Ocean Life.
