We've just begun an ocean unit in my class and I have a few activities to share with you. If you click HERE you can download a free pdf file with a research sheet, 11 poems, and a science experiment.
I LOVE studying the ocean. The kids really get into it.
One of you fantastic bloggers (and for the life of me I cannot remember who!!) had a post about Graffiti notes. We did that last Friday after watching an ocean video and it was a huge hit. Here are some pics from that.
If you haven't tried Graffiti notes yet, you must! The kids talked about the ocean and its creatures constantly while they were drawing. I think it's an excellent way to encourage them to extend their thinking and vocabulary.
Have a great evening!
Oh my Goodness!! I'm sorry, but I just had to update this post 'cause I just found out I won Jennifer's Brag Tag giveaway.
Thank you very very much, Jennifer! I can hardly wait to pick out my tags :)
Jennifer has lots of great giveaways and very cute freebies, so be sure to drop by her blog (although I'm sure you already know her -- her blog is deservedly very popular :)))
