What can you find in a rockpool?
Creatures living in a coastal rockpool must adapt to the water being heated by sunlight and diluted by rainwater, as well as to the water levels dropping. In a rockpool at the coast we are introduced to an anemone. Anemones are animals which are found all along the shoreline. Their tentacles have hooks on the end for capturing animals which they eat. When the tide is in, limpets and periwinkles eat algae on the rocks. Periwinkles also eat seaweed.
This clip would be useful when learning about different habitats and their importance to animals and plants. It also illustrates how animals must be able to adapt to changing circumstances in their habitat.
