After weeks and weeks of waiting our new skimmer has arrived. This piece of equipment will allow us to feed the corals more liquid food while maintaining clean water. It was over 1000$ but totally worth it.
I left the box in the middle of the classroom for the morning to create a sense of anticipation and then the aquarium caretakers of the day got to open it during free time.
They were very excited about the packing peanuts and bubble wrap (there was a crazy, messy period)
As a class we studied it's features and students recorded observations, made assumptions and asked questions. It turned in a quite lengthy discussion.
Giniah takes learning very seriously and methodically lists her thoughts.
