I'm back this week with another fun activity Princess P & I did for our transportation unit. Did you see the stoplights we made last week? So much fun!
So this time we talked about submarines. We read the fun little book Super Submarines (Amazing Machines). It follows a rabbit, mouse & bird through a submarine, detailing all the different aspects of the sub, what it does & how it works. It's more of an informative book than an actual story though. If you have a kid that really likes to know the ends & outs of different types of transportation - these series of books would be great!
After we read the book we made our own submarine windows!
- 1 sheet blue construction paper
- 1 sheet construction paper of choice
- underwater foam animal stickers
- Let your little one put the foam stickers all over the blue piece of construction paper
- While they are adding the stickers, cut out the submarine windows from the second sheet of construction paper. I used a bowl to trace a circle for the windows
- Add the words: "USS (Childs Name)" & the poem "This is the view I see when riding in a submarine!" to the sheet of construction paper. I put the USS Princess P above the windows & the poem below.
- Glue the second sheet of construction paper to the blue sheet with the stickers. It's ok if you cover up some of the stickers - just line up the corners & put glue all over the back of the second sheet. It'll stick :) You could also use a stapler & staple the edges if you wanted
