Flotsam- Beside the Sea/ Seaside/ Beach Literacy
When selecting a book to engage our children on their topic of Beside the Sea we chose the amazing picture book Flotsam by David Wiesner. These 2 weeks worth of Literacy lesson plans provide detailed activities to create a fantasy underwater creature and writing to support the idea of habitats, diet etc that you can link to Science.
P.S. I've also created a sequence of lesson plans using Virtual Reality on the Playstation 4, this can be found at https://thedeadpixels.squarespace.com/current-practice/perfect-psvr-as-a-stimulus-for-descriptive-writing
