Big Ideas 


1. Understand the relationship between personal qualities, education, and training, and the world of work.


2. Work cooperatively with others as a team member.



1. Read or watch the Story Swimmy by Leo Lionni  


2. Hand all the student a small piece of red paper and one student a piece of black paper. Have the students each tear the paper to form a simple fish shape.


3. Ask the students to work together to create a school of fish to scare the tuna away just like they did in Swimmy.


4. Ask them to work together to create something other than a fish with their fish pieces.


5. Now have themeach decorate their own fish to make it unique.


6. Use the blue Cellophane (From easter baskets) to back the bullentin board and have all the children post their fish.
