This week on Page Turner Animal Adventures we are exploring Fish Tales.

Jump into our Summer 2021: Reading Colors Your World challenge on Beanstack to view new adventures each weekday! You’ll find them all in the Activity Badges section.

SHOW DAY: THE OCEAN’S GOT TALENT

We’ve searched the seven seas for some of the ocean’s most talented creatures. Octopus will perform an amazing escape, Mantis Shrimp will prove he’s not just a pretty face, and Angler Fish has an act you’ll definitely want to catch. With all this talent, will Sea Slug be able to shine?

Puppetry and live action make this show a watery wonder. 

CRAFT DAY: “PRINTED” OCEAN SCENES 

With some recycled Styrofoam and water-based markers, kids can make their own beautiful ocean scenes.

AUTHOR DAY: KATE MESSNER 

Kate Messner is passionately curious and writes books for kids who wonder, too. During our interview, we’ll talk about two books in Kate’s Over and Under series
