Step 1
Cut out five circles from your black
construction paper.  We use a special
cutting tool that makes circles.

Step 2
Go thorough the book and find some
interesting creatures that live among the
reefs.  Use your pastels to draw a picture of
them, then write their name in pencil.  Older
children can write facts on the back.
Step 3
Stack your circles atop one another, and
punch a hole in the top (through all layers)
Step 4
Fasten your brad through the hole so that
all of your circles are attached.
