“Under the Sea” Posters

Today the students in 2KM and 2KJ worked on mini projects about sea creatures.

Using the netbooks and classroom computers, students researched interesting facts about their chosen marine animal. Some of the animals we investigated were sharks, dolphins, seals, sea turtles, stingrays, octopuses, seahorses and sea stars.

Students found information about the animals’ diets, habitats, lifespans, special features and much more. They had to put the information into their own words and create posters to share what they had learnt.

Under the Sea research

After researching and writing out some facts, students focussed on the presentation of their posters. It is important to make posters bright, easy to read and attractive. We included colourful headings, neat borders and realistic pictures on our posters. Check out some of the students’ work!

Under the Sea Sing-Along!

We are having fun exploring what lies under the sea for our Integrated Studies topic.

Next time we have Prep to Grade Two Assembly it will be our turn to lead, and we thought we’d sing one of our favourite songs, Under the Sea from The Little Mermaid movie.

Here is a video with the lyrics (words to the song). 2KM and 2KJ students might like to practise singing at home and everyone else might just like to have a sing-along!
