Octopuses are sea animals famous for their rounded bodies, bulging eyes, and eight long arms.
These cool critters live in all the world’s oceans, but they’re especially abundant in warm, tropical waters.
Like their cousin the squid, octopuses are often considered ‘monsters of the deep’, lurking in the depths of the seas.
However, there are some kinds of octopuses that live in relatively shallow water.
To help tie in our octopus theme with our math domain, your little ones participated in a fun cheerio counting activity.
