Dive in to Ocean Research
A couple of years ago, my first grade team along with our librarian began a tradition of putting up this display for Open House each year, and we still love it! After completing research on specific ocean animals, the students use a planning sheet to compose a research paper. Our librarian designed these wonderful divers to display them with. Each student creates a face, we place them on a diver's body, add a mask and voila! This year I added rainbow fish using glittery scales, but other years (depending on time) we've created all kinds of ocean plants and animals. Since we also do a kelp unit, sometimes we've added kelp. So beautiful and eye catching!
