We had a boat with which to sail complete with sail, paddles and an anchor. We rowed and sailed to places our imaginations took us. The song, "Row, Row, Row Your Boat" was sung often throughout the week.
Using paper towel tubes, we added stickers to make scopes to search for land and other things.
Exploring in a pool of water helped us discover the properties of water.
Using shaving cream, food coloring and a squeegie, we were able to create a beautiful ocean mural.
We painted to create sails.
Then we rolled bits of clay in which to poke straws. We taped the sails to the straws and then used styrofoam shapes for our boats.We placed them in our pool and then used our breath to power them. They sailed off to destinations unknown.We played a game called "Float or Sink". Using a container filled with water, we chose many things from around the room to place in the water. We made predictions- would the item sink or float?
