Biología Marina (Marine Biology)

KMS children are diving into an amazing investigation of life in the ocean while practicing vocabulary words in Spanish for different animals, learning true facts about each one of them and admiring the ocean’s diversity. The children are creating a portfolio with pictures, research and facts about these special creatures. They have been having discussions about how to protect our oceans and how efforts are made to understand these fascinating and magnificent creatures as well to protect them.
