While coral reefs only cover 0.0025 percent of the oceanic floor, they generate half of Earth’s oxygen and absorb nearly one-third of the carbon dioxide generated from burning fossil fuels.
Coral are among the most important animals in the ocean. The living part of the coral is made up of tiny creatures called polyps, which are relatives of sea anemones.
During Earth Hour, we looked at the importance of Coral Reefs and how we can better protect them.
For this sensory tray we used our Coral Reef Toob and Cotton Sensory Sand! These are two of our most popular products and for good reason. The Safari Toobs allows you to teach your little one about so many different animals and their habitats.
For our loose parts we used glass pebbles, shells and rocks we collected form the beach.
