Little Explorers

A student lifts the rib of a grey whale over his head with help from a teacher.

Kindergarteners from Malibu’s Sycamore School visited the Santa Monica Pier Aquarium last week, where they learned about some of the ocean’s finest creatures. With the help of staff and chaperones, the students participated in an ocean animal scavenger hunt, and got up close and personal with a 25-year-old lobster shell molt and sea stars.
