Tidepools Alive! Preschool and Kindergarteners learn about marine habitats

The New England Aquarium came to visit the Preschool and Kindergarten students with their "Tidepools Alive" program.

The children were given a presentation about marine habitats and one lucky student from each class was chosen to dress as a starfish!  The children were then able to explore and interact with local tide pool animals like hermit crabs, sea urchins, starfish, and snails, all while learning basic biology and anatomy.

The program was enjoyed by all!
