Wrapping Up

Conclusion

Ask your child what he has learned about turtles that he did not know before. Ask him to read his own turtle myth to the family.

Art Extension

Materials: egg carton, glue, green construction paper, green or brown tissue paper, paper bowl
Let your child tear green and brown tissue paper into half-inch pieces. Different shades of green and brown will add variety. Cut a single egg holder from an egg carton. Glue the small strips of tissue paper to egg holder.

Using green construction paper, cut four small legs, a head, and a pointed tail. Fold each about ¼ inch in and glue or tape these to the inside of the turtle shell. Now you have a baby turtle.

To make a mommy turtle you can repeat but use a paper bowl instead of an egg holder for the shell.
