God Makes the Ocean and Sea Animals: Dolphins

Monday, February 19, 2018
This is part of our preschool learning we did at home. It includes ideas that can be used at home to learn about God's creation. *This is intended for home use or preschool (or kindergarten) classes. They are not intended for Bible class.*
We began our study about dolphins with these information posters I created. They are two to a page to save printing. They have a real photo and information text easy for preschoolers to understand and hold their interest. Click here to download the posters.
 I put together notebooks for each person that included each habitat. I added the other animals we would be looking at like farm and pets to the same notebook. These Marine animal posters were created to be able to see each ocean and sea animal. I used real photos and put two per page to save ink. Just cut down the middle after printing and they are ready to use. I kept them simple, but tried to find full bodies of the animals in their habitat.  Click here to download.
I found these foam glitter stickers at Michaels. I had them paint on an ocean background and when it was dry, they added the stickers. They loved the glitter stickers! I had other sea life foam stickers that they used also. Click here for the ocean background.
And they made the free dolphin craftvity here. There is another here.
The kids love mazes and enjoyed this free maze donated by Education.com.

Practice fine motor skills while helping these sea animals out of the maze!

We looked at these books from the library. This means this is what our library had available. If there is not a link, then it was not on Amazon at the time of posting. I suggest looking at your library to see what is available for free and if you love any of the books, then purchase them. Most of these are not really for preschoolers.
*A favorite book (not pictured) is Dottie Dolphin lift-the-flap by Maurice Pledger.

 We also read (and loved) these basic ocean & sea books:
Pete the Cat Scuba-Cat   Usborne Under the Sea (lift the flap)
In the Ocean (touch & feel)   Guess Who Ocean Friends (lift the flap)
