Abstract: 

This innovative assembly program teaches all about the gentle manatees. Here students meet Snooty; a large plush model of a manatee. They see wonderful slides of manatees underwater. They hear the different sounds made by the manatee. And many fascinating props and slide shows where manatees live, show the behavior of the manatee calf, and show how they eat, sleep, and play! Students also learn the scientific process and how scientists study manatees, by seeing a demonstration (with the help of two students). Students LOVE this assembly.
