We have been having fun at camp this week singing silly songs, reading fun books and moving like a variety of different sea creatures. Our mornings are spent outside in the yard where we have built an obstacle course. We have discovered it is more difficult to pass through the tunnel like a crab (walking sideways with our hands moving in a pincer-like fashion) than an eel.
One of the books we read today, Star of the Sea by Janet Halfmann
...inspired our starfish craft.
We learned some fun facts about starfish, read a poem about the importance of keeping them in the ocean, and even had a dried one to pass around to get a closer look. We felt the rough texture, talked about how they move and counted each of the five arms.
