Mermaid Lagoon

With most of our blue planet covered by water, it’s little wonder that, centuries ago, the oceans were believed to hide mysterious creatures including sea serpents and mermaids.

Merfolk (mermaids and mermen) are, of course, the marine version of half-human, half-animal legends that have captured human imagination for ages.

One source, the “Arabian Nights,” described mermaids as having “moon faces and hair like a woman’s but their hands and feet were in their bellies and they had tails like fishes.”

We had so much fun learning about mermaids this week!

We talked about King Triton from the movie, The Little Mermaid, sung the song “Under the Sea”, and created mermaid tails with bubble wrap!

For this activity, we used a few materials to create our own version of the Disney story, The Little Mermaid.

With seashells, toy mermaids, a wooden house and their thinking minds, students enjoyed creating their very own mermaid lagoon!
