Undersea World

This is a fun activity to do, with a black piece of paper, a “flashlight” page (included here) a ziploc bag and Sharpie permanent markers. Kids draw their undersea world on the plastic bag with Sharpies (Sorry–water soluble markers don’t work!). Insert a piece of black construction paper into the bag. The students color and cut out their flashlight.
