What’s Under the Ice?

Yesterday, we were using water colors to paint an iceberg in the Antarctic Ocean. Icebergs may look quite small on top, but they’re huge underwater!

We were using different shades of green and blue. There were many sea creatures such as krill, whales, coral and fish. Do you know that a whale is the biggest creature in the Antarctic Ocean?

A few other items we used were black oil pastels and salt. The reason we used salt was to give the water some texture. We made the water go darker and darker as it went deeper.

We also had to put in some penguins on the iceberg and swimming in the water.

We made it in the Infant Hall and it was on a really long piece of paper. The bottom of the ocean looked beautiful because it had colorful coral.
