Learning about the sea

Posted on: October 5, 2016

Although they may not be close to Salem Twp. Elementary, the world's oceans are still an important part of our lives.

That's what Salem third and fourth graders learned when the Oceans in Motion assembly visited school recently.

Students learned about ecology of the ocean world, why it is important to care for the oceans and things people use that come from the ocean. Sharks, whales, rocks, starfish, sand, salt water, plant life, and waves, are just some of the subjects covered in this program.

In the video, students race to pick up ocean "pollution" with their crabby claws.
