The Squishy Sponge

By: Rachel Kim


It’s surprising that although a large amount of the population is found in sea water, about 150-200 species of sponges are found dwelling in freshwater as well! These underwater sea creatures have multiple different body structures and appearance, certain habitat, and, of course, the diet.


As you can see, this creature's characteristics, and the important knowledge we have learned about sponges are important because this information can help us in many ways such as spotting them, having lots of knowledge about them, and understand what their abilities are. I hope that with the facts we learned today, one day I can go exploring to find sponges by using the knowledge of what they look like, where they are located, and what and how the creatures eat!


In this section, test your knowledge on what you have learned today about sea sponges by taking this quiz!

Go Fish

In the “Go Fish” workshop, We were assigned to make our perfect tank and had bought four different fish. I chose one strawberry dottyback, one Glofish Moon-rise tetra, one Glofish Galactic fish, and one powder blue tang. My tank theme was pink and had purchased many pink items like gravel, corals, and plants. I spent less than my budget which was $250 because i spent $181.91 in total for my supplies and fish. My 20 gallon tank was efficient for my fish which totaled up to 18 inches. In conclusion, I chose these fish to swim happily in my tank!


This diorama has a sea turtle, octopus, seahorse, jellyfish, sponge ( may main organism), starfish, corals, and a dolphin. These animals are numbered in order and I have listed them in that order. I had lots of fun to make this diorama and this project and hope next years fifth grade class will too!
