Swimming in the Ocean

This week we have started a new science unit on Oceans.  Today we made a poster of different ways animals move in the ocean (swim, drift, crawl):
I am so impressed at the increase in neatness and speed that Catherine has made in making posters.  This is an excellent activity for her in categorizing.  It really drills home the fact that there are three types of movement in the ocean.

She also needs the cutting and gluing practice.  I also printed out sentences regarding each movement type, which she had to sort into the right column.  We also hang the posters in the school room and she frequently points to them and refers to them.
