Share Fair Week 4!

Written By Michal B. Whittaker and Althea R. Jackson

It’s the final week of Share Fair and we’re going out with a bang! {theoretically of course 😉} This week’s categories are Science and Social Studies. Aside from having to create a visual piece and write a report, students also had to express their knowledge in an interview with their judges. The judge’s critiques are based on the flow of the backdrop, the visual element, their written report, and their confidence in their topic. The science kiddos were also judged on the scientific method if applicable.

Creature Feature: Sea Otters!

SeaottersOther

Sea otters are small marine mammals that live in the Pacific Ocean in North America and Asia. While they are one of the smallest marine animals they are the largest member of the weasel family. Sea otters spend most of their time in the water but in some places they come to the shore to rest. This is not always the case. When a sea otter sleeps in the water they sleep floating on their backs. They also sleep holding hands with a fellow otter to keep from being separated! Sea otters are one of the only mammals that use tools. Sea otters carry a rock with them everywhere they go. They use this rock by placing it on their chests then smash their prey, clams, sea urchins, crabs, and the like, on it to open their outer shell. They are also the only marine mammal that can flip-over boulders on the ocean floor looking for food. One more thing that’s special to them is their fur. Sea otters have the densest fur of any animal. This is to keep them warm as they don’t have blubber to keep them warm like other marine animals.
