3 Rationale At this grade level, students like to use bold colors and work with expressive, somewhat real objects and entities. Students are interested in copying what they see and trying to depict what they know The world around them is very interesting, especially the parts that they cannot see up close and personal

4 Materials Needed  Black construction paper  Crayons  Blue paint  Water  Double-sided Tape  Paint Brushes  Saran Wrap  Pictures  Drawing Paper (white)  Black Markers  Pencils Have plain white paper, pencils, and coloring supplies at the students’ spots when they come in the room to save time

5 Instructional Strategies Day 1 Motivation  Ask Students what they know about the ocean?  What kinds of animals live in the ocean?  Ocean Water?  What other things would you see in an ocean? Note: Class discussion time should be used to engage students as well as learn so putting the students’ ideas on a board will be beneficial. 7 MINUTES7 MINUTES
