1st Grade Hermit Crabs

To begin class, we read A House for Hermit Crab by Eric Carle. It is the story of a hermit crab who is looking for a new shell. Once he finds it, he makes many new friends to help make his new home special. We drew our own hermit crabs in crayon. The students had the option of adding some of the details from the book to their shells, leave them plain, or add their own touches. Once everything was drawn they added more color with tempera paint.
