I bought this from the local teacher store... laminated it and use it to post
 all my parent notes/reminders on the classroom door during ocean week.


A Sea Search

You'll want your youngsters to realize that there are other fish in the
sea besides their teachers and classmates. Prepare a sea search that
will introduce them to additional school faces and will also yield ocean
treasures for your classroom. In advance, arrange for people in your
school to have sea gifts to give to your group. For example, provide
sea creature shapes cut from craft foam for your water table, plastic
ocean creatures for your water and sand center, or traditional sand
toys such as molds and sieves for an outdoor sand area. Then take
students on a tour around your school. As you make each stop and
meet each new person, collect the classroom gifts. "Sea," our school is
an exciting place to be.


Field Trip Ideas

Find a seafood market in your area that has a variety of whole
seafood, such as octopus, squid, shrimp, lobsters, mussels,
clams, or crab.  If they're alive, all the better.  Children can
 make drawings of what they see.  Ask the market manager
 to talk to the children about where the seafood comes from,
 when was the seafood caught and how, and what kind of seafood
 people seem to like the most.

 If going to a seafood market is out of the question,
 here are some other fun ideas...

Bring in a whole crab or lobster for the
 children to examine in the classroom.

Visit an aquarium. 

Or ask a marine biologist to visit the class.


Hermit Crabs

Hermit crabs are popular pets.  They are inexpensive, can be touched by young children,
 and are fun to watch.  Purchase a hermit crab for your classroom - just make sure
 that you purchase an extra shell.  Every time they grow they need a new shell.


Helper Chart & Door Display

I use the fish from our door display below to create our helper display.  Each morning
 I assign new jobs for the students by taking four fish from the door and adding
them to the splashes of water above that have a classroo
m job written on it.

I added this display to our closet door near the
 main door at the beginning of the school year.
