Diving into Marine Science!

Genesis 1:26

26 Then God said, “Let Us (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) make man in Our image, according to Our likeness [not physical, but a spiritual personality and moral likeness]; and let them have complete authority over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, the cattle, and over the entire earth, and over everything that creeps and crawls on the earth.”

God has given us each the responsibility to care for our world, and this week, we were excited to begin learning a little more! Our heroes began their journey as Marine Scientists, discovering how our world is created. Over the course of the next 5 weeks, our heroes will continue learning about our world, the oceans, weather, the food web, and what they can do to help. For our final exhibition, our heroes will then take you on a tour through their Journey Academy Marine Science Museum!!
As part of this quest, our scientists will complete weekly challenges to help them prepare to be your tour guides. Some of these challenges include experiments, creating a coral reef, exploring a question (about the ocean) they are interested in, dissecting a shark, adopting a sea animal, and building a sea creature model. Each week, they will complete a new challenge as well as a set of Jeopardy Prep Questions for our “Under The Sea Jeopardy” at the end of this quest. Some milestones your scientist will conquer on this quest include:
Week 1:
  • Completing the “Krill Challenge” on the Open Ocean
  • Completing the Krill Level Under The Sea Jeopardy Prep. Questions
Week 2:
  • Completing the “Crab Challenge” on weather patterns and natural disasters
