Headfirst at Home: Handprint Hermit Crabs

April 21, 2020

Today we're going to learn about some very special organisms that call the ocean home, hermit crabs! Turn your handprint into a marine life masterpiece with this Headfirst curriculum art project.

Objective: Hermit crabs are crustaceans that live on the ocean floor. As Hermit crabs grow, they need to find a new shell to fit. Hermit crabs need to be optimistic that they'll find the just right shell for them throughout their lives!

Super Six Connection: This week's theme is Resiliency. At Headfirst, we know our grit muscles are never-quit muscles. Just like our hermit crab friends who need grit & determination to be successful in finding a shell to call their home, we remember that practice is perfect as we complete this project!
