Adventure at the Aquarium

on February 12, 2013
Shipley 3rd grade students traveled to the Adventure Aquarium in Camden, NJ today.  Students have been reading the book Shark Lady in class for language arts.  In social studies, students have focused on the age of exploration across the seas.  Studying ocean animals (sharks, sea turtles, and whales) in science was a great way to make connections across the curriculum.  
 
some animals we saw:
 
tiger sharks
 
zebra sharks
 
hammerhead sharks
 
loggerhead sea turtles
 
northern diamond terrepin turtles
 
jellyfish (moon jellies and sea nettle)
 
sting rays
 
hippos
 
african penguins
 
cuttlefish
 
Here are some pictures of the trip:
