As I told you earlier, we have been studying oceans and coral reefs this week and learning a lot of different facts. Did you know that the parrotfish bites off chunks of coral when eating algae? It cannot use that coral so it comes out the other end as sand which ends up on the tropical beaches around the world?

How much sand does each parrotfish produce each year? Approximately 1,100 lbs

Homeschool Share has a lovely FREE Coral Reed Animal Study and Lapbook that we have incorporated into our study this week.

Another adVENTURE of FREE, fun learning :)

Happy learning!
