The theme of unit 9 of Mercedes' My Father's World Kindergarten was the Octopus. The Bible theme was "Even the octopus praises the Lord" based on Psalm 145:21, "My mouth will speak in praise of the Lord. Let every creature praise His holy name for ever and ever." We read lots of books about the octopus and other sea creatures and talked about how God's creation praises Him by showing us what an amazing and creative artist He is.
In addition to reading lots of octopus and sea creatures books, we made octopus hot dogs for a snack one day.
We used paint and Mercedes' hand prints to make a googly eye octopus.
Then cut it out to add to our ocean collage made with blue paint for water, sand paper for the ocean floor, and fish we printed and cut out off of the computer.
