Every Thursday in June and July, marine educators at the UGA Aquarium will host virtual programs designed to inspire wonder and curiosity about the coast by featuring different activities and animals. These afternoons at the aquarium will include a mix of games, art, stories and virtual animal encounters that provide fun learning experiences about the ocean. Children of all ages are welcome, but activities are designed for ages 4-8 years old with an accompanying adult.
June 18: What’s in that shell?
Have you ever found a shell on the beach and wondered where it came from? Believe it or not, that shell was made by an animal! This week we will be learning about different types of animals that make shells, such as snails and oysters. We’ll also introduce you to a live hermit crab who lives in a shell created by another animal.
