SEA TURTLE; art & craft project

Sea turtles start out by hatching from eggs under the sand of a beach. They risk their lives as they race to get to the sea. They spend years at sea and when a female is old enough she returns close to where she was born to lay her own eggs.
In this activity we will make a mother turtle.

What you need:
·        Card or manila folder
·        Scissors
·        Glue
·        Texta, black and green
·        Photocopy templates to use as guides
·        Optional, use of onion skin to create shell pattern
What to do:
·        Using the illustrations as a guide cut an egg shaped piece of card or manila folder

·        Using the cut out as a guide draw the turtle head, body, tail and flippers

·        Colour the scaly skin using a green texta

·        Colour in two eyes with a black texta or paint

·        Cut out pieces of card or onion skin and decorate the top of the shell

·        Cut out the pieces of card to create the breast plate on the underside of the shell

·        Put the head, flippers and tail template between the upper shell and the breast plate

     ·        Secure with glue
