While we may not be able to venture out for a bit, there are lots of places you can "visit" online. Virtual field trips are a great way to mentally get out of the house with your family and see some cute creatures along the way. Scroll down to explore the wonders of the ocean and make sure to visit my Virtual Field Trips page as I update it weekly with new places to explore.
 
Let’s go to the….
aquarium
 
Join puppies, Odie and Carmel, as they take a trip to the Georgia Aquarium. They had a great time seeing manta rays, whale sharks, and lots of colorful fish at the aquarium’s Ocean Voyager exhibit. 
 
 
 
Like most places around the country, the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago is closed to visitors. But, the absence of visitors had an upside for 3 of Shedd's rockhopper penguins, whose keepers took them on a "field trip" to explore the aquarium for themselves. 
 
Watch as a pair of bonded penguins named Edward and Annie waddle past a tank full of sharks and rays. Eventually, they wander all the way toward the information desk.
 
 
Wellington and his friends took a tour of Shedd Aquarium's "Wild Reef".
 
 
You can enjoy more videos like this on @Shedd_Aquarium twitter feed.
 
You can also visit the Monterey Bay Aquarium and watch the fish swim, the sharks glide and the sea otters play on the aquarium’s many live stream cams. The "jelly-cam" is very relaxing!
 
Not only does the National Aquarium in Baltimore have live animal cams (the blacktip shark cam is extra cool), but you can do a walk-through tour of the aquarium as well to really feel like you’re there. 
 
Activities
 
This cut and glue mini-book targets the prepositions "over, under, next to, in front, and behind" with ocean animals. Also, great for practicing answering "where" questions!
 
Create a 3-D pop-up ocean animal while targeting your language goals. This craft includes both color and black/white pages that focus on several goals including verbs, pronouns, categories and functions. 
 
Who lives in the ocean? Use the Ocean Animal Sort to work on categories and "Wh" questions. 
 
Play "I Spy" to work on a variety of language skills such as receptively identifying (find the ___), labeling, increasing utterances (e.g "see ___" or "I see ___"), and describing (by color other attributes).
