Open this book and walk along the ocean shore. If you look carefully, you might find all kinds of things. "The value of this treasure hunter's appreciation is in the notion that real 'treasure' is in the looking."--Kirkus Reviews

Open an Out of the Ocean Museum!
 
What did you nd? Where did it come from? 
Invite children to bring objects that have washed ashore. Have a display table ready, and print up plenty of
museum labels
to ll out. If possible, set up the museum table near the place where you later plan to read the story. You might want to provide a few ob- jects for children to research for the museum before the reading, or borrow items from a nearby
museum’s ocean kit
 for children.
Sharks’ Teeth Hunt
  The
Ocean Journal 
 in
Out of the Ocean
tells how Debra learns to distinguish the dark, triangular shape of sharks’ teeth from bits of shell and sand. Fill a
large tray
with a couple of inches of
sand
. Sprinkle with
sharks’ teeth
. (see below) In-vite each child to dig up a tooth with a
long handled teaspoon
. Provide tiny
bags or boxes
for carrying home.
Beach Photo
Snapshots taken at the beach were a big part of Debra’s method for making the illustrations for
Out of the Ocean
. Invite your guests to create a wild beach
assortment of towels, masks, ippers, beach hats, sunglasses
and
 oats.
 Let them step into a
sandbox
 (child’s
plastic wading pool
) and pose in front of a
backdrop
 of palm trees and water. (Paint a beach scene on cardboard, roll paper, a white sheet, or a shower curtain.) Advertise the photo booth, and use guests’
personal cam-eras
, or offer to take
instant pictures
 for $1.00 each.
