    We made an ocean mural. I got ocean books and displayed them. For science, they researched some information about ocean fish. They then each picked an ocean animal that they wanted to make. They made fish out of different materials. Paper plates folded in half for crabs and jellyfish. Construction paper drawings of fish. We cut everything out and make a great mural. We painted the bottom of the mural with brown paint. It was sponge painted. Then we cut thin strips of green paper for the seaweed. Finally, to bring in swimmy, in the center of the mural was a large fish that i traced. Inside the kids stamped fish inside of it with a fish stamp that i purchased from Walmart. They dipped it in paint and made one large fish out of small fish stamps. Just like in Swimmy! It turned out beautiful and the kids loved it. If you want I can take a pic of it.
