Drawing Notes:

The octopus is landing on the ocean bottom from left to right. He has flared his tenacles to provide more resistance to land softly.

Fun facts:

Octopuses are sea animals with eight limbs that are called arms. They have suckers on their arms to help them catch food and move around.

Octopuses are mollusks, which means they have soft bodies and no bones. They can change their shape and color to hide from predators or communicate with other octopuses.

Octopuses have two eyes and a hard beak for a mouth. They are very smart and can learn new things and solve problems.

Octopuses live in all the oceans of the world, but mostly in warm, tropical waters. They can vary in size from half an inch to 30 feet across.

Drawing Notes:

The giant squid is swimming up the page with his two large fins on the side of his head, eight arms extended to both sides, and two long tentacles with suckers and sucker rings almost reaching the bottom of the page.

Fun facts:

The maximum size of the giant squid is 13 meters (43 ft) for females and 10 meters (33 ft) for males. The eye of the giant squid is the second largest eye of all living animals. It measures more than 10 inches (25 centimeters) in diameter.

There is a larger squid, known as the Colossal Squid. The colossal squids eyes are as large as a basketball.

Drawing Notes:

Our piece of coral is from the Caribbean and will help our fish feel at home when added to a picture.

Fun facts:

Elkhorn coral (Acropora palmata) is an important reef-building coral in the Caribbean. The species has a complex structure with many branches which resemble that of elk antlers; hence, the common name. These structures can be over 2 meters (6 feet) high.

Drawing Notes:

The manta ray is swimming towards the top of the page with the cephalic lobes extended in row 1. The tail is curved as it swims away from the bottom of the page. Manta rays are not aggressive. These gentle giants are more likely to swim off when threatened than show aggression. While they have long, whip-like tails, they do not possess the barbs or stings that stingrays have for defense.

Fun Facts:

Manta rays have a flat diamond-shaped body with triangular pectoral fins and broadheads. Their eyes are on either side of their heads, and the manta ray’s mouth is at the front of their head. They have two protrusions called cephalic lobes, either positioned in front of their mouths like scoops to help them feed or folded up in twists that stick out in front of their bodies.

Manta rays are the largest rays in the sea. While the average manta ray is around 15 feet, it can reach up to 30 feet in length, 23 feet across its disc and wide pectoral fins. They can weigh up to 6,600 pounds.

Playful Braille:

Our jellyfish ate so much braille that he had to spend the night hiding in the library. He gobbled up the alphabet, all of the single-cell contractions, many of the punctuation marks, and a few extra dots for dessert!

What do you think the jellyfish did next?

How many words or names can you find in his belly?

Drawing Note:

The jellyfish can be divided in half between cells fifteen and sixteen. What you see and touch on the left side is mirrored on his right side.

If you fold the jellyfish in half vertically, so that the left half forms a ninety degree angle, it is like looking in a mirror and seeing the reflection.

The reflection is the reverse image.

If you cut the page in half vertically and lay the pages on top of each other so that the dots touch, that’s like looking straight into a mirror–the images are reversed.

The top of a jet plane.

Like jellies, rays are not true fish.

Drawing Notes:

The ray is swimming toward the top of the page. The tail is curved as it swims away from the bottom of the page. Stingrays have long, whip-like tails with barbs or stings for defense.

Fun Facts:

Stingrays are present in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors as there are 220 species of this animal. The stingray’s body can be diamond shaped with more prominent pectoral fins. There are also round rays like the Atlantic stingray. Their eyes are on top of their body, and their mouths are on the undersides of their bodies.

Depending on the species of stingray, they can be small, like the ten-inch, five-pound Atlantic stingray, or quite big, like giant freshwater rays, which can get up to 800 pounds and reach a width of eight feet. The longtail stingray is noted because the whip-like tail measures more than twice as long as the body.
