ADVENTURES OF OCEAN ANNIE: EXPLORE CORAL REEFS cover image
We used our imagination and went for a swim in the ocean to see all the cool animals. There were fish who got a bath, one fish opened it's mouth so other fish could get the stuff out , like brushing teeth. We learned dolphins breathe like we do. You have to be safe in the ocean and swim with a friend and use hand signals to talk to each other. "We used our imaginations in a scuba suit and went exploring, saw a lot of fish, we saw a turtle, a whale shark and a lot of creatures." "It was great, amazing, super cool!" The kids participated, answering questions, laughing and singing along to the ocean song. "I have always liked animals and think it is good to learn about them so that we can learn how to keep them safe." Ocean Annie appealed most to the younger kids, but all the kids learned and were engaged. "First we dived into the water and explored the coral reefs. We saw clownfish and shrimp, and Ocean Annie's favorite - SHARKS! We finally made it to the sand place and saw the cuttlefish and learned about its babies."
Ocean Annie excels in teaching about marine animals and environments. I can't imagine a child who would not be inspired to want to see these creatures first-hand. The cinematography captures the true natures of the creatures. The easiest way I've seen for children to learn about the ocean. Teaches about how a scuba diver dresses and communicates with hand signals under water. We learn about how fish find their food and about the "fish bath" where they help each other get clean. Rich in information about marine biology. Reflects the idea that children can be given good size portions of information and challenging vocabulary words, even at earlier ages. Live-action, animation and computer generated effects blend to create the diving experience. Some jurors were confused about what age this is geared for, as there are many parts and gestures more appropriate for young children, but the content was clearly interesting for older school-aged kids. Overall a great education on the different species of animals that populate the coral reef.
