We discussed that seaweed, kelp and algae are plants that grown in the ocean. I passed out a green strip of paper to each child. They compared strips and then put them in order shortest to longest and then we tried longest to shortest.
We colored O is for Octopus and each child had 8 pieces of yarn. They formed the letter O with the yarn and then glued on the yarn for the octopus's tentacles. They were also encouraged to write Oo's on their paper.
