Hatching Sea Monkeys

Found In: science, classroom pets

I like to hatch sea monkeys with my class and observe them as representatives of crustaceans. They can still be bought in toy stores everywhere. As a class, we watch them grow in their container. We also inspect them through microscopes, comparing and contrasting them with other arthropods. The book that accompanies the sea monkeys explains how one can train them to do certain tricks, which leads to a discussion about the real meaning of these tricks. They were developed in a laboratory, so we discuss hybrid breeding and creating new species. Sea monkeys are fun classroom pets!
