Educational activities for families at Gardaland Sea Life Aquarium
The ongoing Coronavirus emergency means that families are always looking for new activities to allow them to spend time together in a fun and educational way.
Gardaland Resort has therefore been promoting active fun activities specifically designed for families and, in particular, for all the children staying home from school, across its social media channels. The activities centre around the Gardaland Sea Life Aquarium – the themed aquarium situated inside Gardaland Resort whose mission is to protect sea environments.
From the aquarium’s website, for example, in the “interactive ocean” section, families can download drawings of different species of fish in order to colour them. Children can then store their drawings for a future visit at the Aquarium where they will have the possibility to bring the creations to life. In the new “Interactive Ocean” room the children will be able to scan their drawings in, to bring the colourful fish to life and have them join a huge virtual aquarium projected on the wall.
A similar activity is also available on the Instagram profile @gardalandsealife: in the featured stories “oceano interattivo” you can choose your favourite fish, take a screenshot, color the fish using the tools of the IG story and then share the creation by mentioning the profile of the Aquarium.
On the Aquarium’s Instagram page, children can also discover different fun facts on the species of fish they are colouring: the clown fish, for example, lives on the coral reefs in symbiosis with the sea anemones because it can survive the poison of their tentacles; however, its habitat is at risk due to pollution and the climate change.
During these difficult times especially the mission of the Aquarium is to help children to have fun while learning how to know, appreciate and respect the different species that populate our planet.
