First graders at Gribbin School learned about sea stars as they touched and observed live "Stars of the Sound." An educator from the Waterfront Center in Oyster Bay brought several sea stars to the school, as well as clams and mussels, shellfish that the sea stars eat, all of which can be found in the Long Island Sound. The children identified the sea stars' parts and learned how sea stars eat, see, and regenerate arms, culminating the session by making a sea star craft.
