Ryan's Great-Great-Grandmother's Coral.

Ryan brought in some coral to share with the class. It belonged to his Great-Great-Grandmother who has passed it down to his Mum, Mel. It is very fragile, which means it can easily break.
Some members of our class have been researching Coral Reefs in their reading. What facts have you discovered? Add a comment to share your new knowledge.


  1. A coral reef grows about 25 mm per year which is about as big as the word "with"

  2. I'm wondering how Ryan's great great grandmother got all of the coral reef

  3. coral can form forasts,sea gardans,foods.

  4. They`re really fragile.
