Games & Outdoors : Beach & Ocean

Sea Life Game added 7-17-00 Original Author Unknown

Sitting in a circle, give each child a picture of either a starfish, jellyfish, seashell or crab. Call out the name of one of the symbols and the children have with that picture all have to run round the outside of the circle and back to their seats as quickly as possible. You can call out two names at once, or say the tide is turning to make them run the other way etc. (Helps with fine tuning listening skills)


Fishing Game  added 7-17-00 Original Author Unknown

Make some paper fish with either numbers, shapes or different colors (depending on your children's abilities). Put a paper clip on each nose of the fish. Get some canes, string and magnets to make up fishing rods. Put the fish in a large colorful box and allow the children use their rods to try and get the fish out. They can record the numbers and add two together. Or another way is to try and get all the same colored fish out, putting back the ones that don't belong to them.


Beach Ball!  added 7-8-01 Original Author Unknown

Write a different numeral (using a permanent marker) on each section of an inflated ball. Toss or roll ball to a child.  Have him name & show one of the numbers. Give an activity - such as clapping, jumping, etc... for the group to do. Another idea is to have each child name the two numbers closest to his hands.  Write them on a board, count
out the manipulatives, decide which is grater, or add them together.  


Snorkeling added 6-22-02 Original Author Unknown

Need: Tables; blankets or sheets; pictures of fish, sea turtles, coral, etc.; bendable straws.

Directions: Underneath the tables, tape the various pictures of ocean life.  Drape
blankets or sheets over the table.  Children use bendable straws as snorkels and masks and enter the water (crawl under the table) in small groups because you should never snorkel alone.  Allow the group one minute in the "water".  When they come out, ask questions about what they saw.
