We are learning all about jellyfish, and you can too. Not only that check out this super cool, stretchy, silly, slime dough we made. My kids love sensory play, so I try to incorporate that into a lot of our learning. Since we have chosen to use Five in a Row as part of our curriculum this year. I knew just what we were going to read and explore this month. So come along as we share our Night of the Moonjellies experience.
Night of the Moonjellies Activities (FIAR)
Jiggly Jellyfish Slime
The life cycle of a jellyfish.
These amazing cards and flow charts can be found on Montessori Print Shop.
Did you know that Jellyfish have been around for over 650 million years and that they aren’t fish at all. They belong to a group of animals Scientists call cnidarians. Most only live for 3-6 months but some have been known to grow HUGE and live much longer…
Look at all of the super cool things we got the chance to experience by getting outside in nature.
Schools of fish, turtles, crabs, and of course Jellies.
The boys explored the boats, ran along the pier and learned all about what goes on at a marina. This was such a great experience and guess what? This was only the first part of our slimy jellyfish adventure. I still have much more planned for our Night of the Moonjellies. Make sure to follow us so you don’t miss part 2, and all of the other great adventures we have planned for the year.
I hope you enjoyed reading about our learning adventures with Jellyfish.
