Beach Biology

Yesterday, Anthony researched plankton and types of plankton. Who knew there were so many different types of plankton?

Plankton consist of any drifting organisms (animals, plants, archaea, or bacteria) that inhabit the pelagic zone of oceans, seas, or bodies of fresh water. Plankton are defined by their ecological niche rather than their phylogenetic or taxonomic classification. They provide a crucial source of food to more familiar aquatic organisms such as fish.
Though many planktonic species are microscopic in size, the plankton includes organisms covering a wide range of sizes, including large organisms such as jellyfish.

Thomas completed his Chinese assignment. We went to a Latin Mass, talked about St Peter of Alcantara, all did maths, reading, music, chores, work at Kumon. Then pizza and talk about Fiji with friends.

Today? Latin Mass again - and mass and Novena tonight for St Anthony. Movie Club tonight - Surrogate, a sci fi film with Bruce Willis. French Class - researching France and sharing of info. Table tennis and Monopoly with friends. Guitar hero. Reading. Mere Christianity.
