The Second and Third grades at SFC are deep in researching their fall projects. This semester our kids are studying endangered animals specifically polar bears, sharks and sea lions.
The three classes of our second and third graders went to the Aquarium of the Bay on Pier 39 to learn more about the sharks and sea lions. The Aquarium has an amazing program that gears its education towards K-12 students.
Last Friday, November 13th the 2/3 classes went to study the sharks. Here are a few pics:
On Tuesday 11/17/15 the entire 2/3 were back to the Aquarium of the Bay but this time to study the sea lions. First, we took the bus to Pier 39.
Then the classes broke into two groups to attend the program class. Ms. Joy’s class had to wait so we took a brief walk over to Musee Mecinaque at Pier 45. This is also known as the “penny arcade” and is a museum of old arcade games. This was a big treat for all the kids.
Back to learning… the Aquarium has a specific Sea Lions Program Center. Here the kids learned through a guided teaching experience but also through observation of the sea lions themselves that come to SF every year and sun bathe on the decks off the docks at Pier 39.
The weather was perfect. The day was smooth. The kids had fun AND they learned a lot by asking a lot of great questions and getting to see up close the amazing sea lions. Now back to class to work on their presentations!
Come and see all that the students have learned at SFC’s Project Open House
