Amazing Adaptations

How does a sea horse protect itself? Why are penguins such good swimmers? Go on an adventure with characters Captain Joe and Scuba Shara as they investigate a mysterious ocean animal with some very interesting adaptations.

Using the Sea Dragon and Penguin webcams, students can make live animals observations to spark questions and discussions about animal adaptations. Worksheets and lesson outlines are provided to help guide this adventure.
