Junior Marine Biology: Week 4

Welcome back, we’ve missed you! Thank you to everyone around the world who has sent us emails. 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, you’ll need your marine biology logbook, some coloring pencils and a few items that you can upcycle from around your house. There are a few worksheets (after video 2 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.

Nicole and Lawrence measured out how big a manta ray is, now it’s your turn. Try to gather as many items as you can (family members and obedient pets are great too) and measure out 3.5 meters (the average size of a manta ray in Laamu). Can you imagine swimming with an animal that big? Email a picture of your manta ray at home to marine-laamu@sixsenses.com.

It’s time for another coloring in activity, and we’re joining the Manta Trust Kids Club for this activity. Download their worksheet below and color in the manta rays and trevallies. As Lawrence mentioned, when manta rays behave like this, they are doing it for a particular reason. Can you remember why? We would love to see pictures of you and your drawings, email them to marine-laamu@sixsenses.com.

You’ve seen Lawrence identify two manta rays from some RUV (remote underwater video) footage and now it’s your turn to try. The next video clip is from RUV footage captured here in Laamu. Use the worksheet below and the Junior Marine Biologist's Guide to Manta Rays of Laamu to identify the manta rays in the video. We would love to see what manta rays you saw so please send you results to marine-laamu@sixsenses.com.

Download RUV Identification Worksheet here 

If you enjoyed doing this RUV footage activity, head over to week five of the Manta Trust Kids Club where you can do a similar activity with lots of different animals.

Get ready to meet a manta ray in virtual reality! This video works on your computer, tablet or phone. We recommend a tablet or phone.

Can you identify the manta in the video? Pause the video when you see its spots and use your Junior Marine Biologist's Guide to Manta Rays of Laamu to identify which manta ray it is.

Thank you so much for joining and we can’t wait to see you next week when we’ll be learning all about the magical world of seagrass, which are the meadows of the ocean!

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 #AtHomeWithSixSenses and #GrowWithSixSenses.
