One of my grade 6 students made an 'ocean cross-section' picture today for Captains Courageous. She has shown different layers of the ocean using paper and cardboard in various shades of blue ( included a collage effect at the bottom) and different paint applications ( including marbling and painting using a shaving brush) The overall effect is great. A fishing dory is on the surface.
We have some unfinished work to do for Captains Courageous on Monday so I should be able to post that unit on TPT on the weekend? We'll do a short unit on Danny Dunn to finish off the week and start on Robin Hood the week after next.
