Pine Class Learn about the “Wonders of the Sea”
Pine Class enjoyed the hook for their new topic ‘Wonders of the Sea.’
We imagined that we were shipwrecked and carried out activities such as deciding what items we would want on a desert island and who out of the stranded passengers we would want to save.
In the afternoon, we made plasticine boats and floated them, adding dried peas to simulate our passengers. Landon managed to get his boat to carry 57 peas without sinking!
We finished off by watching the Disney film ‘Shipwrecked!’
We are really looking forward to this topic where we will be learning about the Titanic and later watching Blackfish when we will be debating the necessity of keeping whales in captivity.
