Sea Turtle Demonstration and Special Lessons at Anderson Elementary

Anderson teachers recently participated in a Sea Turtle Exploration Workshop at the Fort Fisher Aquarium and they will share what they learned with second and fifth grade students. The students will participate in stations, learn about the sea turtle life cycle, different types of turtles, and turtles in the Sargasso Sea. There will also be a pretend turtle stomach dissection to demonstrate what turtles eat. Students will also work on building a device to protect sea turtle nests.

Dr. Stephanie Crow, a local veterinarian and Anderson parent, will be a special guest and she will assist with the stations.
