Alicia's Aquarium Journal - April 4

Today we have a 1st grade class here for a visit. They are taking part in an on-going program and will be visiting every Monday in April. Today's lesson is observing how turtles and tortoises live an thrive.
Tortoises live on land. They have feet that are round sand stumpy for walking on land. Turtles live in water and have webbed feet and streamlined bodies to glide through the water.
We teach the students to respect all life!


  1. Too bad this aquarium doesn't really exist. I want to go there. :)

  2. I was wondering when a class of school kids would come visiting, Alicia. And women from art clubs. You have a real variety of creatures in your aquarium.

  3. Mickey, we should go to one to sketch.

    Mythili, this aquarium will have a lot going on. lol

  4. Love that... teach them to respect all life. Seems we need more of that these days unfortunately. Your turtles are fun!

  5. Glad to see you appreciate them. Thanks so much, Sheila!
