In the Classroom: Under the Sea

Recently, Anne Phillips subbed for Mrs. Silver’s kindergarten class at Burnsville Elementary School.  To incorporate their unit on ocean study, Anne read Swimming by Leo Lionni.  She brought photographs of creatures that you would find in the sea, and using empty water bottles students made their own miniature ocean world.  Each student got to pick 8 beads that Anne provided.  She brought fish, dolphin, starfish, sea horses, seals, shells, whales, and a few others.  They dropped the beads, along with some glitter, vegetable oil, blue food coloring and water into the water bottles and created a magical underwater world.
