Toddler Learning Time: Dolphins

Today I watched an awesome video with my son. We used the video as part of our home school learning time. The animal that we chose for this week is the dolphin. We talked about where they live. We also talked about what they eat. In addition, we learned about an interesting phenomenon happening with the dolphins at Sea World.

The Sea World aquarium exhibit featuring the dolphins has been transformed into something ground breaking. The dolphins have begun doing the most amazing thing. We watched them in action through the YouTube link but I am thinking how amazing this would be to see it in person.

We already have plans to travel to Orlando in April and this might be the perfect attraction to add to our itinerary. I have never been to Sea World and am really interested in aquatic animals.

The exhibit is called dolphin bubbles and a video can be accessed by following any of the links in this post.

This is a very short video and it's the perfect length for a toddler. It is a great resource to incorporate into home school learning. My son was amazed that the dolphins were able to blow bubbles.



  1. I watched this in awe. I can't wait to show it to my dd, age 9 (soon 10). She went to Sea World twice during Christmas Break. I honestly believe she enjoyed it much better than Walt Disney World. I think it is because she loves animals so much. She really likes Killer Whales now since visiting Sea World. I believe your whole family would enjoy it.


  2. I was amazed by the dolphin bubbles video. Then we (My 4, 2, and 2 year old and me) watched the rest of the videos. They really enjoyed them. Thanks for the links.

  3. ASpen and I were glued to this video and watched it more than once!
