Jacques Cousteau and Jell-O

Today we learned a little about Jacques Cousteau's underwater adventures and enjoyed this fun underwater-themed snack.

Book: Manfish by Jennifer Berne. Biographical picture book (lovely illustrations by Eric Puybaret) with an inspirational author's note motivating children to not only learn more about Cousteau and the marine world, but also to care for our planet and pursue their dreams.

Snack: Berry Blue Jell-O with Swedish Fish and craft foam sea anemone. To weigh down the foam, I cut a slit near the bottom and stuck one of the gummy fish through it.

I think the family I live with just did this same project today (or possibly tomorrow for the homeschooling science lesson).

Um, that's weird, don't you think?

Too too cute! I'll have to keep this one in mind when we do some ocean themed projects.
