CECI focuses on weather, sea turtles
This month, teachers at the Children’s Education Center of the Islands on Sanibel have focused on topics such as wind and rain. With daily rainfalls and hurricane season in full swing, the children have been learning about the forms of weather and making connections to their daily lives. The CECI also based its curriculum and learning approach on sea turtles. The youths counted turtle “eggs,” created sea turtles out of recycled materials, learned new facts about sea turtles, and even created their own sea turtle nest. The CECI thanked the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation for providing supplemental information and resources for the project. The children used the signage that SCCF uses to mark their “sea turtle nest” on the playground.
