(A4) Sea Turtle Life Cycle

Sea turtles live in the water. Their habitat includes almost every ocean on Earth. Only females return to land to make a nest and lay eggs. Most female sea turtles return to the same beach to the nest using their natural instinct. Sea turtles dig an egg chamber and lay eggs. Females usually lay about 100 eggs in each clutch. Sea turtles camouflage their nest before returning to the water. The life cycle of a sea turtle goes from adult to egg, to hatchling, to juvenile, to adolescent, to adult. A life cycle is a way a living thing grows and changes. Hands-on Activity 1. Read the text above. 2. Using the life cycle models, a tray of sand, water, and sargassum, take a series of pictures to make a video describing the life cycle of a female sea turtle (adult, eggs, hatchling, juvenile, adolescent, and adult). 3.
