The Smithsonian Marine Station at Ft. Pierce

This has been a week for field trips, yesterday we visited the Planetarium (I do not have any pictures......I accidentally left my camera in the car......maybe someone will send me some pictures from her camera)? 

This morning we went to the Smithsonian Marine Research Station in Ft. Pierce. 

Hezekiah and Maggie did a scavenger hunt.  Eli had a special Easter day at school, so he had a lunch date with Page and got to go to Page's work and play a bit (so he had a big day too)!  (Special one on one time with Daddy).

We visited each of the marine ecosystems and found organisms that lived in each ecosystem.

There was a wonderful touch and feel tank, we felt sea stars, sea cucumbers, sea urchins, saw some conch feeding on algae and hermit crabs. 

Maggie Beth and Hezekiah matched up shells and saw moon jellies.

In their classroom there was a beautiful reef aquarium, brine shrimp to look at under microscopes and  we also got to see some amphipods.
