Predators, Prey and Ocean Food Webs at Maritime Gloucester
Maritime Gloucester invites kids to a vacation week session about Ocean Food Webs - part of a week full of educational sessions during February vacation! How do different types of fishing gear work? How is life in the ocean interconnected? How is energy passed from one living thing to another? From pinching claws to sleek fins, creatures have various structures that help them find food or avoid being eaten.
By handling and viewing shells, dry specimens, and model fishes, children will learn about some of the different adaptations that help creatures to eat or avoid being eaten. As a group, children will draw an ecosystem of sea life and make connections between predators and prey in order to construct a large food web and illustrate the transfer of energy.
- For kids in 2nd – 5th Grade
