We have been talking about the different kinds of water we can find in Florida. There are rivers and springs, lakes and streams which are all made up of fresh water. We have the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean, and they are made up of salt water. We talked about the different kind of creatures that live in each type of water.
For this provocation we invited the children to paint the sea.
We used different "shades" of blue chalk and blue water color paint to create a water effect.
Cecelia told us, "my ocean is going to have a lot of waves."
Some children drew and painted "coral reefs" and told us stories about sharks and other creatures that live in the sea.
