Kindergarteners do an aquatic study in science at our school. They have an aquarium in their classroom, they visit the local aquarium, they learn about different bodies of water, and a variety of aquatic animals. In art we practiced drawing a variety of ocean animals from reference photos while working on an ocean mural. We used watercolors for the sand and water (adding salt to create texture). Then we used tempera to paint seaweed and stamp coral. Last each Kinder group chose an ocean animal and we used printmaking foam to create stamps.
