  1. Hi Caitlyn!

    Great work with this activity! I like that you have clearly labelled the answer in capital letters, it makes it very easy to find your answer :)
    I think that maybe you might want to double check your answer for Fact 1 and 4 - If you find some new information feel free to update this activity :)

    I didn't realise that sharks were the only fish that have eyelids ...that's so interesting!

    I think it's pretty amazing that we have only (apparently) explored about 5% of the ocean floor ...that's a lot of ocean floor left over, there might be some amazing sea beasts we don't even know about!!

    Do you have a favourite sea animal Caitlyn?
    I think mine is turtles - I got to swim around a lot of turtles when I was overseas and I thought they were so cool! They look really graceful when they are swimming through the water.

    Great job with finding the facts Caitlyn - keep up the awesome work!

    1. Hello Ellee,

      I have fixed up those two facts, so that they are correct. My favourite sea animal are Dolphins because they are so smart and they can dive in and out of the water and they look so cool.

      Caitlyn :)

    2. Hi Caitlyn!

      Wooohooo! You are on a roll! Great work :)
      Dolphins are a great choice - Did you sign the petition about the Maui dolphin?

    3. Hello Ellee,

      No, I haven't as I am not sure on how to do it, but I would love to sign one to try and help save the Maui Dolphin!

      Caitlyn, :)
