While learning about what lives under the sea, the Canandaigua preschoolers talked about fish, whales, starfish, mermaids, and scuba divers. There are a lot of living creatures in the ocean! On the last day of ocean week, the teachers helped to dress up the children who were interested as mermaids and scuba divers!
The children practiced ‘swimming’ with a ‘fin’ and some even tried walking with it! The scuba divers practiced ‘breathing under water’. They tried on goggles and used scuba gear to breathe! Pretend play is great fun and important for children to expand their thinking!
