A Visit to the Aquarium

Yesterday we took our 2nd graders on a field trip to the Sealife Aquarium in Aurburn Hills, Michigan.  It wasn't exactly what we expected, the kids were a little bummed that it seemed so short, and outside of a field trip the admission is very expensive.  It took us about half an hour to see everything, which made me feel like my kids rushed, but after speaking with other teachers I'm finding that this seems to be fairly common.  It was exciting to see eels, rays, and sharks.  They have an octopus, but it was hiding in a corner and was hard to see.  It's pretty dark in aquarium, so keeping track of kiddos very closely is an absolute must.  Either way, I thought I'd post and share a few of the pictures that I took while we were there!








 I spy an octopus that's trying to hide from us!

I wish I had time to take more pictures, but keeping track of my kiddos is always the top priority!  And yes, they all thought the eel was gross and scary!

  1. We went to Sea Lif on Monday! I also wished it was a bit bigger but there was tons of information on the walls to keep us busy a bit longer. We loved the sting rays and the touch pool was the hands down favorite!

    1. There was a lot of information, which I did like and appreciate. We definitely needed more chaperones (we had several cancel). The sting rays were awesome! Everyone was excited about it. We kind of had to remove them from the touch pool area. I'm sure they would have stayed all day if we let them. Going there made me want to go right back to the Georgia Aquarium though!
