The 1st graders have been studying the ocean and its inhabitants in science class.  They came for some Open Studio classes to create an underwater diorama.  Shoeboxes were painted in 4 shades of blue to represent the 4 layers of the ocean: sunlight, twilight, deepwater, and abyss zones.  The students then drew details creatures that belonged in each zone.  The ocean layers will make an appearance at our school’s science fair later this school year.
