By looking at their shapes, you can recognize the major corals that make up the reefs of the Hawaiian Islands. Can you match the common, descriptive names of the coral with its picture?
Ship to House Comparison by Barbara Mayer
What is it like to live on a ship? Can you find your way around? Find out by matching pictures of various shipboard rooms to everyday living spaces.
