Shedd Aquarium!

Let's learn about ocean animals! Recently, we went on a fantastic field trip to the Shedd Aquarium! This was a perfect way to begin our unit on ocean aimals. We saw the baby Beluga whales  the pacific white sided dolphin show!

We explored the museum…using our very handy map. The kids were giving us directions!

We saw the jellyfish.

We had a hands on experience with the ocean floor.
We saw sharks, clownfish (NEMO!!) and anemone. We hung out with our new turtle friend and discovered his habitat. What a busy day!

We enjoyed some time outside in the gorgeous weather…what a perfect day! Thank you to Miss Kilian for making it fantastic!
