Junior Marine Biology: Week 3

Welcome back, we’ve missed you! Thank you to everyone around the world who has sent us emails this last week, we love hearing from you and can’t wait to see your updates after today’s lessons. Be sure to email us your pictures and feedback to marine-laamu@sixsenses.com.

For this week’s class, all you need is your marine biology logbook, some coloring pencils and a few items that you can upcycle from around your house. There are two worksheets (after video 1 and video 3). Download and print them if you can. Once you’re ready to get started, go ahead and press play on the first video.

In the worksheet below you’ll find your coral that needs labeling and coloring. Corals come in all sorts of crazy shapes and colors so you can be as creative as you like! Send a photo of your finished work to marine-laamu@sixsenses.com

Download the Color and Label coral worksheet here

We can’t wait to see your coral colonies. You can either follow what Lawrence did and use old toilet paper rolls or make them out of whatever you can find. Be sure to email us a photo of your colony when you are done.

Word search time. You can download it here. As Lawrence said there’s a hidden word in there, see if you can find it.

Ok now it is time for this week’s big experiment. You’re going to do exactly what Pip just did, but with photos of four different parts of the reef. You will need to have these three things in front of you:

  • The photo of the quadrats can be downloaded here
  • The worksheet can be downloaded here 
  • The coral shade chart can be downloaded here 

Which type of coral did you find are bleaching the most? Was Pip’s hypothesis correct? She thought the branching corals will be more bleached than the table or massive corals. Email is your results to marine-laamu@sixsenses.com.

Thank you so much for joining and we can’t wait to see you next week when we’ll be hearing from the Manta Trust team!

Remember to share what you’ve written, drawn and discovered today by emailing our team at marine-laamu@sixsenses.com or get your parents to tag us on social media @SixSensesLaamu and #GrowWithSixSenses.
