Crab Habitats

For this activity, we combined clay, rocks, and sea shells to learn about crabs!


By using clay, we created habitats for our little creatures and learned a new word: detrivore!


Crabs live among the rocks, and often eat the remains of what other fish live behind. This is what a detrivore is! The children delighted in manipulating the clay, and providing the perfect home for their little crab.
