Several aquatic animals must be made (shark, dolphin, whale, turtle, seal, seahorse, starfish, puffer fish, clown fish, crabs, octopus, etc.), it is important that for each aquatic animal one medium and on the back of this write a study habit, these animals should be hidden anywhere in the classroom (pay attention not to keep them in places that are a risk for children), they should also make 2 or 3 small fish that are equal to the medium ones and keep them in a bag, for example: a medium whale and 2 or 3 small whales, a medium dolphin and 2 or 3 small ones, a medium turtle and 2 or 3 small ones and so on the number of aquatic animals defines it the number of participants. Once all the aquatic animals are made, they are hidden in the classroom and the small aquatic animals are kept in the bag. Each boy or girl must take an aquatic animal out of the bag and go out to look for the similar animal that is hidden. They must be told that if they find another animal that is not theirs, they must leave it in the place where they find it and not tell their companions so that each one becomes responsible for their search. The image of the bottom of the sea should be made on a sheet of cardboard so that the children can put the aquatic animals they find there, paste them with tape and they should read the habit that corresponded to them and that they find on the back of the medium fish, explain what they understand of each habit and how you fulfill it daily.
