Monterey Bay Aquarium Virtual Field Trip
Today’s virtual field trip is taking us to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Located on the ocean’s edge, the aquarium is a window into marine life — for dive masters and non-swimmers alike. It’s home to sea otters, penguins, sharks, jellies, and thousands of other marine animals and plants. Whether you homeschool full time or temporarily, we know you’ll enjoy the Monterey Bay Aquarium! We’ve also got aquarium coloring pages and an educational mobile game from the Monterey Bay Aquarium! Download Aquarium Coloring Pages Here Sharks Sevengill sharks, leopard sharks, spiny dogfish and the elusive Pacific angel shark all dwell in the Monterey Bay Habitats exhibit. This exhibit’s 90-foot-long hourglass shape gives the big sharks plenty of room to glide and turn. Keep your eye out for big skates, bat rays, giant sea bass and rockfish. Sea Nettles (Jelly Fish) Sea nettles look gentle but don’t let these invertebrates fool you—those gently trailing are covered in stinging cells! Used to hunt tiny drifting prey, the stinging cells paralyze it and stick tight. The prey is moved to the mouth-arms and then to the mouth, where it’s digested. African Penguins Watch these energetic and inquisitive African penguins and you might even see […]

Older children have a better developed immune system than toddlers; however, another factor is that the older a kid gets, the less likely he or she is to put things in their mouths. Toddlers put everything in their mouths, their fingers, their toys, even the remote control! In tests on hospital room items, researchers found that remote controls harbored more germs than any other common item in there! Clean Remote Another major reason a toddler get sick is that they often play near other toddlers. One drippy, runny nose or cough can go from a child’s hand to the handrails on a slide or play kitchen and pass to every other child who touches them. How Can I keep My Toddler From Getting Sick? It might seem obvious, but stay away from other toddlers if they have a cough or a runny nose. Many parents believe that if a child doesn’t have a fever, it is allergies. In reality, it could very […]
