Parts of a Sponge Activity

Sponges are “sessile” animals, which means they don’t move around; live by pumping large volumes of water through their bodies and filtering out tine organisms and organic particles of food.  This activity improves the Child’s reading skills and teaches them the correct nomenclature, which expands their vocabulary.
