Friends in the Sea, Are you like me? (Prek - K)

by  Aquarium of the Pacific

Program image

Follow Gracie, a baby gray whale, in search of animals that are just like her. Along the way, she will discover that just because they live underwater, not all ocean animals look or sound the same. On this learning adventure, students will use sound, movement and observations to discover some of the animas that make the ocean their home.
