Walking by an Aquarium?

     If you plan on walking down the 6th grade hallway anytime soon, you may need to bring your diving gear. There has been an aquarium added to the hall.
6th graders in math, reading, science and English completed a long term unit focusing on one of the earth's biomes, the ocean.
     The wall aquarium was created spotlighting the major oceans and their inhabitants. Special attention was given to the beach and coastline, coral reefs and Indian Ocean, the Atlantic and Pacific Ocean, the twilight and midnight zones, and the Arctic Ocean. Animals and plants found in these ranges and habitats were added to create a very life-like appearance.
I like how it feels a little more like summer during our walk to classes...sunglasses may be needed.
