Under the Sea

An amazing variety of ecosystems exist within our oceans, from pods of whales to schools of fish. In this theme we look at the migration path of humpback whales, the way they breathe through their blowholes, and their unique tail patterns which make the identification of individual whales possible. Next we look at the anatomy of jellyfish and study their pulsing motion, and children are later given the opportunity to don beautiful jelly fish costumes and mimic this motion. Lastly, we explore the way herring move in a school, rely on each other for protection from predators, and communicate by making unique clicking sounds.

This program is aligned with both the Australian Curriculum and the Early Years Learning Framework.
