Grades 3 through 5 spent the day at the New England Aquarium in Boston on a grand adventure. We arrived early enough to have the Aquarium to ourselves and we spread out all over the aquarium with our classmates and chaperones. Our first stop was the GIANT Ocean Tank on the top floor. We arrived just in time for the first presentation and feeding time. It was fun observing how the tank workers carefully navigated their way through the tank as huge tilapia and puffer fish swam by.

The star of the day was 69 year old Myrtle the turtle, queen mother of the Ocean tank. Although Myrtle weighed about 400 pounds she swam regally across the tank for her vegetarian breakfast of fresh iceberg lettuce. SNAP!
