Plan an imaginary cruise, using maps, studying other languages, and drawing scenes from your trip.
Organize students in a central area of the classroom such as the reading rug. Ask students to share exciting places their families have visited or might visit on a boat or ship. Use Crayola Dry-Erase Markers to document student contributions to the discussion on a class white board.
Once the discussion has closed, organize students into small groups. Each group will plan an imaginary cruise. Students plot the course of the trip on a map. Record the imaginary itinerary on a chart or calendar. Ask groups to consider: Why did you select this destination? What do you anticipate seeing when there? How long will you stay? Where will you stay? Who will take care of your home and pets while you are away? Etc.
Each group will make a portrait of the group waiting to leave one port on the cruise, using Crayola® Oil Pastels on construction paper. Depict the foreground and background scenery realistically, and show clothing appropriate for the climate. Blend layers of color in the background with a small piece of paper towel.
Describe the port scene and the feelings of each group member. Use vocabulary words that capture people's excitement and curiosity.
Groups create a daily journal of their cruise and destination.
Post student artwork, accompanied by daily journals in an area of the school hallway for peers to view and read about the destinations.
