stART – Leopard Seal

21 Mar

Since our world map was placed on the table top, Ilyaas (4) has been fascinated by Antarctica. From some other books we have, he discovered some of the animals that live in the Antarctica. He is most fascinated by the leopard seals. This was the one book I found at the library on this particular seal.

The book has very detailed photographs of the seal and its habits. The book follows the life of a female seal.

We tried foam painting for this week. To make the paint, mix equal amounts of white glue and foam shaving cream.

Foam paint

So engrossed . . .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This was a coloring page I found here. Ilyaas wrote the name of the seal. He is still trying to form letters and often flips them.

He added the whiskers and spots to the seal.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This was a template I created from images I found. We used this picture to talk about the concept of predator and prey that was introduced in the book.

 

 

 

 

 

This was coloring page from here. Antarctica looked pretty real with foam paint on it.

I took the chance to also discuss about the different types of penguins in Antarctica. In the book itself several species of penguins become prey to the leopard seal.

 

 

 

We watched this video as well.

    As salaam alaikum,

    The white paint reminds me of shaving cream. I really like these ideas.
