In Ms. Berry's class they read the biography The Fantastic Undersea Life of Jacques Cousteau. They learned all about his love for the sea and the many inventions that have helped to share the beauty of the sea with the world! In the art center students drew an illustration of Jacques and the sea creatures of the deep. With Ms. Moore, students wrote paragraphs about why and how Jacques Cousteau explored the sea. Students are having a whale of a time in Ms. Berry's 3rd grade class!
