Water means life

Water is one of the most important things in human life. We would like to make our students conscious of its great importance and aware of dangers caused by lack of water.

When we say water life we mean all the animals (even these very small) living in water (in the ocean, sea, river etc.). These animals vary a lot, even though they all live in water. We will try to introduce you to the most interesting ones.

Aquatic plants are characterized by relatively poorly developed root system, some of them do not have any. Many of them however have strongly developed rhizomes. They are characterized by very low mechanical and conductive tissues development, do not have cuticles and stomata. They have large air spaces filled with air. The osmotic pressure in the cells is low - up to 8 atmospheres.

Water life Group 5 by etwinning








We comes from the sea. It makes us feel relaxed, its waves give us energy, its animals and plants make us be healthy and cure our illnesses. I like the sound of the sea and seagulls. We can communicate with another person, who lives very far by a message in a bottle, we can read its stories of sailors and sea maids. I like The Sea and living in an island like Tenerife. There are many things to discover from The Sea




The Athlanctic Deep Ocea Seabed





Our students visit aquariums, dolphinariums, etc with their teachers  to learn  Biology lessons alive about all kinds of water animals in the sea, ponds, rivers, etc in outside activities. 









This is a robot which will take you on a journey to the depths of the ocean. It is eco-friendly as it is powered by solar energy. It purifies water as well as feeds fish. It also takes beautiful underwater photographs. If you want to admire the beauty of ocean and get to know aquatic life, this robot is a perfect solution.

A Marine Biology Lesson in Museum of Nature and Man, Santa Cruz of Tenerife


We visited Museum of Nature and Man, Santa Cruz of Tenerife to study marine life like local fish species, cetaceans like bottlenose dolphins, orcas, crustaceans like arrow crabs, starfish, sea urchins, lobsters...octopus, squids, corals, mussels, winkles, limpets, plankton, sponjas, fossils, rays, sharks, loggerhead turtles, whales, seabirds like seagulls, the noisy Cory's Shearwater, which lives in the holes of cliffs, under stones and in caves of "Barranco del Infierno" (Hell's Ravine) and Roques de Anaga. It makes a distinctive high-pitched sound when flying.


Take a look at our slideshow:










We used Thisissand, Sketchtoy, FlickDraw and Bomomo to create our drawings presenting water as a way of relax.
