| Mrs. Kerdock from the New Jersey Academy for Aquatic Sciences’ TrOUTREACH program visited the campers at Camp North Branch as part of their “beach” themed week.|
The TrOUTREACH program brought science to life right in our own program!
Our program started with the children working in teams of two to find a letter and an animal to match. C is for CRAB, L is for LOBSTER, and S is for SHARK were a few of the pairs that were found.
They were then introduced to Sea Stars and a Horseshoe Crab! A Sea Star has five legs and five eyes, but they move very slowly. It takes them a week to travel a mile. A Horseshoe Crab has ten legs, no teeth, and uses its tail to flip himself back over.
We had a great time learning about sea life!
