Amazing Oceans

Posted by at 3:23 pm in News | Permalink

Oceans_diver Lucky Scholastic Kid Reporter, Mariam El Hasan, went to the premiere of Oceans, a new documentary movie that opened for Earth Day and is an amazing look at how incredible Earth's oceans are. If you love whales, dolphins, seals and everything else that lives underwater, this is the movie for you!

But it's not just for future marine biologists. In her review, Mariam says, "Oceans is not a boring documentary with pretty pictures. It is an entertaining, interesting, and educational movie that will capture your imagination and is a feast for the eyes." To find out more about the movie, read the rest of her review.

Oceans_seals Not only did Mariam see the movie, she got to go the Blue Carpet premiere and actually got to talk to the real experts who helped make the film! (Yeah, normally it would be a Red Carpet, but they made it blue to match the "ocean" theme.) One of the oceanographers talked about how kids can help save the oceans. She even called kids "the most important citizens on the planet." To find out what experts and scientists want YOU to do to save the oceans, read about Mariam's experiences at the premiere.

So, how does it feel to be so important? I hope you will all go make a positive impact on the world like the awesome kids you are!

    Hey everyone! I know Earth Day has passed, but that doesn’t mean we can’t stop loving and caring for it! So go plant a tree! Did you know how they breathe is completely different from ours? We take in oxygen, and give out carbon dioxide. Plants take IN carbon dioxide, and give OUT oxygen! So the more trees there are, the more air we have to breate!
