California Academy of Sciences: Science @ Home - Coral Reefs (Ages 4-8)

Chances are, your 4-8-year-old has a lot in common with coral reefs: Active, frenetic, and constantly in motion!

Temporarily tame their antics with an immersive introduction to the wonders of the reef, featuring a variety of coloring, crafting, and guided video activities.

Many of the ocean’s critters grow up on coral reefs, so it’s the perfect place for mini marine biologists ages 4–8 to get their fins wet.

Coral reefs are home to all the colors of the rainbow—and 25% of all fish species in the sea. From microscopic baby corals to mega-sized sea turtles, there’s room for everyone on the reef. Enjoy a week under the waves with science crafts, activities, coloring, and more.

Please note: While Science @ Home activities are designed to be conducted by kids, some little ones might need adult help with reading instructions and preparing crafts.
