Teach kids about the fun animals in the ocean!
Learning about marine animals is an early science lesson for kids. Our Baby Marine Life Hop can make learning to identify different ocean creatures a fun, movement-based activity. This mat is ideal for both preschoolers and kindergartners and helps kids make a splash into kinesthetic learning.
Baby Marine Life Hop features illustrations of both adult and baby sea animals that are sure to capture the imagination of young learners. At 38 inches wide and 92 inches long, this mat has plenty of space for multiple students to play and learn. Whether using it for science class or during free time, this mat encourages active learning and collaborative play.
After hopping on this mat, students will be able to identify common marine creatures. They will also learn how to read the sea creature names, which promotes their letter and word recognition skills.
Make learning the types of sea creatures an engaging, hands-on activity for kids! Movement-based learning helps boost students’ learning comprehension while aiding in the development of gross motor skills.
