Here are some sample lessons from the Seahorse Lapbook:
Where Can Seahorses Be Found?
Seahorses are found in all of the world’s oceans except near the North and South Poles. It’s too cold for them there. Seahorses do not like very deep water. They live near the coasts where it is shallow.
- Coronet: the little crown on top of the seahorse’s head.
- Eyes: A seahorse has two eyes. It can move each eye independently of each other. This means that one eye can look left, while the other eye looks right.
- Snout: A hollow tube like a straw that a seahorse uses to suck up food.
- Fins: A seahorse has two pectoral fins that look like little wings on each side of its neck. On a seahorse’s back is the dorsal fin. These three fins help the seahorse swim.
- Gills: A seahorse’s gills are located just above the pectoral fins. They help the seahorse get oxygen from the water so it can breathe.
- Tail: A seahorse uses its tail mainly to hang on to a piece of seagrass, coral, or even another seahorse.
- Outer skeleton: Instead of scales like other fish, a seahorse’s body is covered with bony plates that are arranged
