I wanted to learn more about sea turtles ever since we went to the beach. There was a sea turtle nest right in front of where we were staying. We thought it might even hatch while we were there but it didn’t.
For my science project, I watched all kinds of awesome YouTube videos – like this one of a baby sea turtle hatching. I decided to share about a sea turtle’s life on land and life in the ocean.
One day I spent the whole day working on my project. I decided to make a model of a sea turtle nest! I broke apart a box. Then I took it outside and used a whole bottle of glue to glue down sand from our sandbox. Then I gathered four sticks and some string to protect the nest.
I made the sign I had seen at the beach. I also painted a paper plate like a sea turtle!
My favorite fun fact is that leatherback sea turtles come back to the same beach they were born to lay eggs about 20 years later!
