In their Science and Humanities lessons, the Year 4 students at The British School of Kuwait have been learning about environments and making suggestions about how they can improve them. They have been paying special attention to the different habitats that exist within certain environments and the animals that live in these habitats.
Recently the students and teachers from BSK went on a trip to the aquarium at the Scientific Centre. The trip helped the children to identify a major, local environment, ie the sea, and identify and name some of the fish, animals and organisms that live there. The children looked at, and distinguished between mammals and fish that eat plants, and those which eat other animals.
One of the most spectacular sights for the students was seeing the sharks at feeding time. They were amazed to see the smaller fish darting about amongst the feeding frenzy and a whole line of discussion was opened up about investigating feeding relationships within habitats. The aquarium boasts a varied and exciting range of fish and mammals and as the photos show, the students from BSK had a really great time.
