Students read two books about fishing and ships. After viewing portraits, they identify and describe the various types of sailing vessels. They discuss how the artist showed water and detailed the areas around the ships. They create their own collage of a fish-ship or ship-fish and share it with the class.
Pupils use the internet to research a sailing vessel of their choice. Using toothpicks, they create their own models of the vessel and put into blue jello to appear like it is in water. They write a report based on their vessel and share their conclusions with the class.
Students explore various genres of spoken and written expression. While considering the era of the shipyard and sailing, students describe and document a favorite ship, captain, crew, or life of a sailor. Using this information, they examine the various aspects of song-writing.
