The Superior Sea Anemone

By: Ally Green

Introduction

Looking in the tropical waters of Australia there on the ocean floor is a bright sea anemone. Native to the Great Barrier Reef, this spectacular organism is attached to a hard surface. The colorful sea anemone has a unique diet, a beautiful appearance, and an interesting habitat.

Did you know that clownfish live in sea anemone for protection? These gorgeous anemones definitely have a unique diet, a beautiful appearance, and an interesting habitat. Whenever you visit the amazing sea make sure you take a picture of the incredible sea anemone.

Think Tank

For the think tank I did an acrostic poem about the sea anemone.

Sea Anemone Acrostic Poem

Spotted in mostly tropical waters.

Experts can agree that the sea anemone is extremely colorful.

Amazing predators. They can catch their prey with their electric tentacles.


About 1,300 sea anemone species in the world.

Named after the terrestrial anemone flower.

Extremely fascinating. Their tentacles glow in the dark!

Most largest sea anemone species is called the Stichodactyla.

On top of hard surfaces.

Normally, their tentacles come in multiples of six.

Even sea anemones reproduce.

What We Did In Go Fish

In Go Fish we had a budget of $250 to go and buy a fish tank, gravel, decorations, and fish. In all i spent $140.11. I had $109.89 left over. I spent $25.64 on fish and $114.47 on the tank, decorations, food, gravel, filter cartridges, a thermometer, and finally the filter. I bought four decorations and 5 different types of fish. I thought this project was a great way to practice life long skills such as having a budget and looking for discount things. I also thought it was fun to see cool fish and learn how to take care of fish. I definitely think that they should do this next year.

Chef's Corner

For the Chef's Corner I did the traditional Australian Tim Tam. They are a delicious type of chocolate biscuit.
