|Lea holding our first spider crab!
My favorite thing to do was show the kids the crabs we caught with the crab traps. At first I was afraid to touch them but eventually I became more comfortable picking them up and holding them. I also started to think they were cute so it became easier as the week went on! I learned how to distinguish a boy crab from a girl crab from my co-workers and am now able to teach the kids and adults that stop by too. Although no fish were caught with on our fishing rods, a lot of crabs were.
Being at the Children's Museum site this whole week was fun! I love my co-workers and the children are so cute and it's so fun to show them sea life. Despite the fact that it was disgustingly hot this week, I enjoyed my time at the Children's Museum overall! My coworkers and I enjoy seeing the families that come to us and ask us questions about the sea life. Interacting with families and their children is a fun and unique experience as the curious children always have questions to ask. As the summer continues I hope I will learn more information about the sea and can answer more of the questions they ask!
