Room 28 has closely studied and explored the scientific and ocean themes of Dr Seuss 'Wish for a Fish'
"A cat in the hat approaches the beach, two children he sees that he wants to teach. As he’s in his submarine underwater, he teaches the children about the fish, the size of a quarter. As they dive down deep down into the sea, they pass the Sunlight zone, Twilight zone, then the Midnight zone, then they reach the abyss, the bottom of the ocean. The animals they see are only three!! But then as they can see, as tired as can be, their adventure is done with a little bit of……..SUN!"
By Katinia Room 28
Reading about ocean zones inspired our class to create art pieces to highlight the different organisms that live in each zone down in the depths of the ocean.
Sunlight Zone: 0 - 200m
Twilight Zone: 200m - 1000m
Midnight Zone - 1000m - 4000m
Abyss - 4000m - 6000m
Trench - 4000m - 11000m +
As a class we also created a cut out submarine similar to the one used by Dr Seuss in the book.

"Oil is lighter than water? If you get a cup of water and pour some oil in it you can see that the oil does not sink to the bottom it stays at the top!"
