Ocean Activity

We've been learning about ocean creatures for the last two weeks.





Earlier in the week I showed the kids another ocean video. This time they took notes while they watched.

Check out the cutie-pie in fuschia ~ top right. Ha ha!


Afterwards they drew a picture of life under the ocean. They had to include the three animals they took notes on, complete with a talking bubble with the animal telling one or two facts about itself.





I thought it was a fun way to keep the kids both engaged and really thinking about what they were learning.

Feel free to grab the note-taking sheet.

  1. Your kids look so grown up and ready for grade 2 : ) Their illustrations are wonderful.

  4. They do look grown up. It's funny how that happens! This looks great. How do you teach them to take notes?

    1. Thanks, Kimberley. I stopped the video every 12 minutes or so and we talked about what we had learned. I gave them some verbal examples and they went with it.

  6. I love talking to my kids about taking notes too. They feel so grown up, like those high school kids. :) That one gal in the back is too funny.
