Visit to Science City- Aquatic Gallery (Class – Nursery) – 2024

Teaching children about ocean animals is very important as 75% of the earth’s surface is covered with the ocean. They can affect weather, food, temperature, and even our life as 70%-80% of oxygen is supplied by marine plants. The never-ending water body is filled with various aquatic animals that are interesting, unique, and mysterious. Although we have explored only five percent of the water bodies, we have discovered around 2,30,000 species. 

The Aquatic Gallery at Science City is India’s largest public aquarium with state-of-the-art life support systems designed and curated to give a memorable journey of the underwater world. The aquarium consists of different tanks dedicated to aquatic species from across the world with a main tank consisting of sharks and a 28-meter unique walkway tunnel, providing an experience never seen before. And you can't miss to see our cute little African penguins. Here, one can glimpse over 188 species and 11600 fishes under one roof.

On that note, the children of class Nursery visited the Aquatic Gallery at Science City on Wednesday, 3rd January, 2024 during school hours. It allowed children to improve their vocabulary. As they saw the creatures up close and personal, they had a better understanding of the names and characteristics of marine life. They saw a variety of starfish, jellyfish, octopus baby shark, sting ray, etc. to name a few. It also helped them improve their social and emotional skills.
