To share the story of the turtle's life, I included sea turtle facts all over the board.
I was especially happy with the 3-D elements of the board, including the seaweed and the border. To make the ruffled border, I cut strips of butcher paper. I staple the end down onto the board, made a ruffle and stapled above it. Then I made another and stapled, and so on. It added some wavy-oceany-texture to the board!
These turtles feature life cycles on their shells!
Tissue paper turtles must have been so much fun to make!
The spirals include little cards where the students sequenced the events of the story, and below are 3-d dioramas of the sea turtle's nest.
The kids retold the maine events of the story in an accordion fold.
How cute are these 3-D shells? The teacher did a beautiful job of creating a realistic environment!
These turtles are hanging on strips of box tape back-to-back to make them look like they're swimming through the space!
That's a lot of display case!
