Together, pupils will develop a love for the natural world as they dive into a world of amazing discovery! We will introduce them to some of our core sea creatures - from sharks and jellyfish to seahorses! Pupils will be able to identify different 'creature features', understand creatures' needs, and explore ocean and river habitats - making some new, colourful and incredible friends along the way!
The adventure can begin in your classroom with our free to download lesson plans. The first hour will encourage students to identify and describe sea creatures, the second hour lesson explores how human needs may differ or be the same in order to survive and be happy.
