The Academy’s third graders visited the Waikiki Aquarium in October as part of their science class.

Teachers, Debbie Au and Melody Coloma, decided that a field trip to the aquarium would be a great opportunity for their students to gain more knowledge about undersea animals and their habitats.

Coloma said, “This field trip was originally intended for fifth graders, but since our students were learning about the food chains, they were able to adjust this trip so that it was suitable for third graders.”

Students discovered that each small community in the ocean is made up of living things that depend on one another. The students learned about the importance of the food chain involving the sun, plants, herbivores and carnivores.

Third grader Nevada Fernandez said, “My favorite part about this trip was that I saw a lot of undersea animals and I even touched shark teeth. I also learned that the food chain is very important for animals to survive.”

The students were also reminded about their important roles in protecting the ocean community by picking up trash and keeping the beaches clean of pollution.

Third grader Reanna Mitchell said, “I learned more about the undersea animals and it was really fun because I saw a lot of animals that I didn’t see before.”
