Sea Stars are invertebrates, meaning they do not have a back bone. They have hard, bumpy skin that protects them from predators. Sea starts have five arms that can wrap around their prey and squeeze it. Sea stars can be a variety of colors. A sea star may lose one of its arms, but it can grow back. We created our own bumpy sea stars using pearl stickers and a sea star cut out. The younger kids used q-tips and paint.
Rainbow fish are small and live in tropical waters. The older they get, the more colorful they are. They usually swim together in a school. Of course, we read the book Rainbow Fish! The kids created their own rainbow fish using paper, sequins, foil, markers and glue. The younger kids used tissue paper and foil!
