Picture, This! Sea Bunnies, So Very Cute!

Wanted to share:  Perhaps, you may find this a great "Picture, This" activity!

What do you see?  If you think this looks like a cuddly bunny, that's what this marine slug has been nicknamed. The adorable slug, the Jorunna parva, is found in the Indian Ocean, to Japan and the Philippines. Discovered back in 1938, the  "sea bunnies" have only become known to the rest of the world, last year, with the release of some very cool photographs(such as this one).

Ask kids to look at the photograph:
1. Write three descriptions to describe the marine slug.
2. Write a day in your life as a "sea bunny". What do you see? What do you do? What do think about as you spend your life living on the ocean floor.
3. In Japanese, the slugs are called KAWAII (which is Japanese for "cute"). What is one word you'd use to describe the slug?
