The Boat-Fish Connection
We made a few interesting connections between fish, which if you follow our blog you know is a topic we have very recently explored,and boats which is a more recent interest in our class.
We asked the class to think about being on a boat and asked them what they thought might be under the boat. Of course fish was the most popular answer but our friends also thought of "shells" , "rocks" , "turtles" and "manatee". It was a great way to revisit previous topics of inquiry and make connections to new.
The children drew with colored pencils on white paper a picture depicting a boat floating on the water and what might lay beneath.
