I have found so many inspirations online and I can’t wait to start my ocean themed lessons next week! Thank you pinterest posters!
That’s it with my inspirations from Pinterest. Below are the things that I did. We had so much fun. I learned so much about Ocean animals in the process!
Compare/Contrast with a Venn Diagram
After the above whole-group activity, I demonstrated how to draw a clownfish using ovals of various shapes and sizes. Here is what my students made!
I had them draw their fish on white construction paper, cut it out, glue it to blue paper, then cut out pink sea anemone’s and green seaweed (using just scraps of paper).
This is a whole group activity we did after reading several library books about the ocean. is is a great way to develop and build on vocabulary.
This is the fish I made during the demonstration.
Shark Craft! I drew out the head, the body and the fins. Then the students cut them out and put the shark together with glue. I gave them scrap white paper to cut out teeth.
Rainbow Fish using tissue paper squares and foil square scales.
The label below on the shark says “This is what I learned about sharks….” The waves were cut out of construction paper. The students wrote: “____ lives in the ocean.”
The crab, shark and fish were items the students made in learning stations, with the help of older students. The Stations lasted for an hour, with a fourth station being a jellyfish craft. Below are the directions for each station.
