Discover why fish are among the most successful and diverse animals on earth! We’ll focus on physical adaptations of local species found right here in New York, from sharks to sea robins! Using tailor-made guides, students will explore the new exhibits of Ocean Wonders: Sharks! to find out how our fishy New York neighbors can mix and mingle in our city below the sea. We’ll conclude with a “build a fish” activity to create the perfect New York aquatic resident!
