Pond Life Activity Sheet
Students learn about pond life as they create a realistic display right in the classroom.
Learning Game (shown left): Label separate calendar days from the Calendar & Special Days Mini Bulletin Board Set (T-8714): type, predator, and prey. Pin answers under each one and attach near each creature. Create a worksheet for students to chart each creature while researching them at the learning center.
Spark kids’ interest in pond life by creating a realistic mural. Use fadeless paper and trimmers to set a scene, and then add crinkled, blue cellophane to create a 3-D effect for the water. Take a walk outside and have students collect tall grasses and other leaves and plants to simulate those found near a pond. If a walk is not an option, obtain artificial grasses and cattails and add to the display. Students add the pond animals to the appropriate spots on the display. To extend learning, have students study, draw, and add more plants and animals to the display, or research and create a night scene mural.
