Part of Scholastic’s Ocean Life project, “Turtle Hurdle” (grades 4–8) puts students’ leatherback turtle smarts to the test! This learning activity poses five multiple-choice questions, and offers Web sites where students can find the answers. Each question is worth 20 points if they answer correctly on the first try.

Students can search for the answer here.
While participating in the “Turtle Hurdle” activity, students will:
