There's a big coral reef aquarium in the lobby of our library. Each week the girls peek in to see if they can see the fish. They became even more fascinated when the fish and coral and rocks from the aquarium were in a "fish hospital" while the tank was being cleaned and repaired. They got a birds eye view of all the aquarium's content. It has become an interesting thing to watch and a big topic of the girls' conversations. The Hutchison aquarium has made its way into our classroom. And oh! The stories! These girls love the sea!
Building stories in the coral reef: writing and illustrating.
