What a terrific day out in Picture Rocks! We had 3 volunteers helping today as we presented Our Amazing Oceans to over 400 kids! It was a blast! Each grade level came into the library where we got the chance to show all the ocean artifacts and talk about conservation and marine science! I will forever be impressed by how much these kids know about the ocean even though we are hundreds of miles from the nearest sea!

We had the chance to eat in the cafeteria and that was quite the experience! The kids all wanted to sit with us and ask questions about the ocean! We had to keep reminding them to eat their lunch!

Ended with the third graders and they were awesome! We hope we get the chance to make it back there soon to do additional presentations on whales or going green in our oceans!

Thanks Miss Honea for bringing the ocean to your school!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you for coming out to our school! My class loved it. The day after your presentation, I had several students bring in their own shells to share.
    Hope to see you out here again!
