Sea Cucumber

For the past few years, the children has on their own initiative, been making movies and stop motion. They are having a lot of fun making them and we all enjoy watching them. They have themselves found free editing programs on their computer and on the internet, which they have taught themselves to use. One of our children has also started Drama School, and really enjoys acting. Two of our other children are really interested in biology, so the idea to make a knowledge channel, emerged from there. This is our first production on the “Videnskanalen” youtube channel. Our plan is to start of with 5 episodes about sea creatures, we find fascinating. Our oldest daughter is fond of latin, so we try to insert some latin names for animals as well. It is also a good excuse for making interesting field trips. In this case, we visited Den blå Planet which is Northern Europe largest Aquarium, to find information about the Sea Cucumber.
