Ocean-themed play dough/sensory bin activity set to enjoy with your students. This unique 3-D set-up is guaranteed to catch your students’ attention! Along with the ocean scene for play dough/sensory bin there are many skills that your students can practice such as patterns, sorting, writing numbers to 10, matching, shortest/tallest, counting to 10, counting to 5, tracing, building fine-motor skills and much more!
Students will get opportunities to work on fine-motor skills while creating ocean scenes with play dough or in a sensory bin, using clothespins, drawing and writing.
QR code-enabled conversation & inquiry-based task cards are included. When scanned, the QR codes will read the task cards for the students allowing for independent exploration.
Some questions have a definitive answer such as “Which jellyfish is the tallest?” and some have more open-ended explorations, such as “Which starfish is different?”

I highly recommend printing on card stock and/or laminating most pieces for durability. The ocean scenery will not be as useful if it is not laminated.
