Toddler Blog – Jellyfish

23rd February 2018


Today we learnt all about the weird, wobbly wonders that are jellyfish! We made our own squishy blue jelly for sensory play and took a trip down to the jellyfish corridor to see the Atlantic Sea Nettles, Lion’s Mane, Upside-Down jellies and Moon jellies! We learnt all about how jellyfish move, what they like to eat and made our own paper plate jellyfish! We sang, danced and did our best wibbly wobbly jellyfish impressions and had a wonderful time!

3 facts

  1. Jellyfish have been around for around 500 million years and are mostly made from water. They have no brain, no bones and no blood!
  2. The largest jellyfish is the lion’s mane jelly, which measures 2.3 meters across and the smallest is the Irukandji bell which is only 5mm across but has a sting 100x more deadly than a cobra!
  3. Jellyfish cannot control where they swim in the water and are moved around by currents!

Next Week: We are learning about the humungous humpback whale! Come and join us and have a whale of a time!
