12. Along the Coral Reef (cc)

12. Along the Coral Reef (cc)

The coral reefs of the world's oceans are home to a great diversity of fish and marine life. The reef itself is made up of colonies of coral, which can live for several decades to centuries. Projects include: Bleach Bottle Fish - Crepe paper and a bleach bottle are what you need to show off the bright colors in many of the fish of the coral reef. Creeping Crab - Crabs are remarkable creatures that hide from their predators in the crevices of the coral reef. Ours takes a fun look at some of its physical characteristics. Fish Spiral Mobile - A spiral mobile is a unique technique to display the many examples of fish that inhabit the coral reef. Sea Anemone Bouquet - These unique creatures are often attached to rocks or coral and look like bunches of pink and purple petals of a wildflower. The petals are really arms, or tentacles, to capture food. Sea Turtles - Sea Turtles are often green with a large, streamlined shell. Our turtle shell is a clay pot and a little cuter than most sea turtles you'd see in the wild.
