Don’t have the book? Here is a link so you can listen to it being read!
DId you know that there are over 230,000 species of fish in the sea?
This is a Tuna Fish!
There are also other creatures that live in the ocean like:
Whales. What is the name of the biggest whale?
And dolphins! Can you think of anything else that lives in the ocean?
Sing: “Under the Sea”, “Baby Beluga”,”Slippery Fish”
Listen: Pines of Rome-Fantasia 2000 , Brian Balmages-Dolphins at Play, Debussy-La Mer (The Sea) Play of the Waves
Instruments: Keep a steady beat on bells with any rhythm to sound like fish! And keep a beat on non-pitched percussion instruments with a special rhythm to sound like bubbles.
Create our own under the sea music!
Use this background of rolling waves while you makes bubbles and fish sounds! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5PyLgaqvYhA
Rhythm: Playing one rhythm on instruments if you are “bubbles” and keeping one rhythm on instruments if you are the “fish”.
Movement: Moving like a fish and other sea creatures while reading the book and singing our songs.
Art: Students will make their own rainbow fish with scales! Each student will make 7 shiny scales to put on their fish. They will also get a major or minor scale and write the 7 notes that are in their scale on their fish.
Math: Students will count out 7 shiny scales on their fish.
