Art

Ocean Collage
Need: White construction paper, blue paint, pictures or magazines with ocean live pictures.

Have children paint an ocean on white construction paper, have available light and dark blue paint or crayons. While the paint is drying have children look through magazines and cut out ocean life pictures and glue on their ocean painting. Instead of magazine print OceanLifePictures for children to color, cut-out, and glue on their ocean painting.

Science

Sites to See

Dolphins use echolocation to communicate, find food and keep away from predators. Dolphins send out vidberations by clicking sounds. The sounds bounce off objects and the returning sound helps dolphins to locate things. Learn about echolocation.
