  • oak tag, one sheet per student
  • marker
  • glue
  • colored pencils
  • clipart images of coral, seaweed, lantern fish, sea anemone, starfish, snails, sea urchins, pebbles, sponges, barnacles, clown fish, sand dollars, electric eels


Goals:

Students will "retell important facts from a text heard or read."--Massachusetts English/Language Arts Curriculum Framework

Resource Instructions

Have students write their name on their hermit crab oak tag and color it using the colored pencils. Retell the story, with students gluing on the corresponding sea creatures as you read. If they have extra sea creatures, have them add them at the end.

Extensions:

Instead of gluing the sea creatures to the hermit crab oak tag, have students store the pieces in an envelope. They can then manipulate the pieces as they retell the story.
