Art is a way to express ideas in a different language. It is most successful when it can be understood by the many rather than the few. However, the art in the following pages is to encourage the expression about and to serve as a demonstration of learning about the ocean. And it is fun.
There are many ways to communicate through the arts and the next pages of art activities may provide an inspiration, to help stretch the imagination, rather than describing a 'one way only' approach.
The materials suggested in the activities reflect lateral thinking, as art so often does. The limiting factors are what you have at hand, what can be sourced easily and economically as well as thinking outside the box.
These activities may provide a good partner to science or sustainability units of work in the classroom. Or they can stand alone. Although some will be provided, it will be useful to search for images and links for a better understanding on each topic it before starting.
The activities are not rated for age as almost all can be adjusted up or down to suit.
