This week was so exciting and filled with projects. We've got to admit that we started off with a snag, however, when we tried to watch the "Shallow Seas" episode of Planet Earth and instead ended up watching "Great Plains"... Oops! At least we got caught up in something educational, right?
On Tuesday we got right back on track with our Oceans In A Bottle Project. We filled plastic bottles with one half blue colored watered and one half vegetable oil, added some glitter, glued on our caps, and--tah dah!--an Ocean In A Bottle is born! Check out the photo gallery to see pictures of the whole project!
Another great project from this week included turning CDs into shiny fish with Mr. Mike. It was a great way to see how we can turn something old--like a scratched up CD--into something new and awesome. Mr. Mike also helped us use egg cartons to create wacky sea creatures like jelly fish and crabs, too!
In the kitchen Ms. Lauren and some of the kids made blue jello mixed with Swedish Fish candies for a delicious under the sea treat, while in the classroom Ms. Nicky got us started on a new mural for the bulletin board. In this mural we're using fabric to design all sorts of sea life from fish to sea horses to whales! So far it looks great and we hope to continue it as we learn more about the ocean in the next few weeks.
