“If a starfish loses an arm he can grow another one.” -Musa S.
This week we are completing our books all about the sea animal we wanted to learn about. We are looking at different features, why they have certain body parts, how it helps them survive, what they eat and etc. Our books will be added to the Fish Tank area soon, so please be on the look out for it!
We have also begun recreating different sea animals. We are examining the eyes, legs, body and different body parts to make it look just like the real one! We looked through all our books about oceans and sea life. This will also be added to our Fish tank area.
We provided the children with many different materials. We left it all up to them and they did an amazing job!
As they created these pieces, we also read about these sea creatures and learned some cool facts!
