SMALL FRY FEBRUARY- FREE with Aquarium Admission
February 5 & 6
Oceans – Take a close up look at amazing salt water critters, talk with divers as we swim through the ocean discovering the incredible life under the sea and visit with the graceful inhabitants of Stingray Bay.
The “Small Fry February” programs offer you some fun and interesting indoor things to do with your little ones during one of the coldest months of the year. Join a Tennessee Aquarium educator each Tuesday and Wednesday for Small Fry February! Drop in between 10:15 and 11:15 to participate in exciting activities designed to appeal to our youngest visitors (and their parents). On these special days, we will visit galleries, meet live animals, play games, listen to stories, make simple crafts, and enjoy a dive show designed especially to appeal to our “small fry.”
February 5 and 6 – Oceans – Take a close up look at amazing salt water critters, talk with divers as we discover incredible sea life and visit with the graceful inhabitants of Stingray Bay.
February 12 and 13 – Turtles – Explore the world of turtles and discover what they eat, how they protect themselves and the purpose of that incredible shell. Play fun games and meet some really cool critters during this program.
February 19 and 20 – Penguins – These amazing birds live in some of the coldest parts of the world and use interesting adaptations to help them survive. We’ll investigate many things such as feathers, blubber and nesting as we dive into the world of penguins.
February 26 and 27 – Working Animals – People may go to school to learn to do their jobs. Some of the stars of Ranger Rick’s Backyard Safari have their own type of school to learn the behaviors they demonstrate. Meet some of the critters and see how we “teach” our animals in this fun session focused on training.
*Tuesday activities will be repeated on Wednesday so come one or both days for lots of fun!
