monday colors - echinoderms

montessori lessons include scientific names.  echinoderms are ocean invertebrates, such as sand dollars, sea urchins, and sea cucumbers.  they generally have 5-point radial symmetry.
echinoderms can regenerate a part that is cut off, their ossified skeletons contribute to limestone formations, and they have no freshwater or land members.

science is a beautiful thing.  
happy monday!
