Today we had dived into the world of the super sharks! First, we practiced our animal sign language and then we learnt about the different parts of a shark’s body. Some sharks lay eggs, called ‘mermaid’s purses’ and after having a look at some from our artefact box we set off to our Eddystone exhibit to see if we could find any shark eggs in the tank. We managed to find lots of Small Spotted Catshark and Bull Huss eggs hanging on the walls of the tank, next time you are in the Aquarium see how many you can find!
After learning about local sharks, we went to the cave in our Great Barrier Reef exhibit to meet an exciting new friend- a life sized Polar Bear made out of recycled plastics! When we got back to the café we made our very own sharks out of toilet rolls and upcycled paper scraps, we all did a jawesome job of putting all the fins in the right places! A fintastic time was had by all!
