Seahorse Spotlight

Seahorses are one of the most strangely shaped fish and slowest swimmers in the ocean. You’ll often find them just hanging out, using their prehensile tail to grab onto things so they don’t drift away from their habitat. In the video below, SSC’s Henry Burke shares a closeup view and more fun facts about this amazing creature.

After watching the video, learn more with this fun seahorse shape activity.

Below are all of the materials you’ll need.

Special thanks to SSC Volunteer Laurie, who offers you this reading of Mister Seahorse, written and illustrated by Eric Carle, and published by Philomel Books, a division of Penguin Young Readers Group. 


Delayed opening today.
