Others in and Around Water

Sea Creatures

Come along, come with me,
Take a dive in the deep blue sea.
Put on your gear, let's explore
All the way to the ocean floor!

See that snail wrapped in cursl?
Look! An oyster wearing pearls!
Watch the octopus oh so dark,
But don't you dare to pet the shark!

Dive on down, seaward bound,
Motion in the ocean is all around!
Dive on down, seaward bound.
Motion in the ocean is all around.

Now we're very far below,
The lantern fish are all aglow.
Is that a tiny shock you feel?
You just met an electric eel!

Giant blue whales start to stir,
Bigger than dinosaurs ever were!
Wave good-bye to the squid and sponge,
This is the end of our deep-sea plunge!

Dive on down, seaward bound,
Motion in the ocean is all around!
Dive on down, seaward bound.
Motion in the ocean is all around.

Slippery Sam

Slippery Sam was a slippery seal
And a slippery seal was he;
He slithered and slid to the sandy shore
Then he slipped back into the sea.


The Antarctic Food Chain

(to the tune of “The Itsy Bitsy Spider”)

Itsy, bitsy, plankton
Floating in the sea.
Along comes the krill
and eats it easily.

Next comes the penguin
and the leopard seal,
The antarctic killer whale
finishes up the meal!


Sea Animals

What do you see in the sea?
Animals moving free!
Snails and whales
Using their tails.
Seals and eels
Looking for meals.
Catfish, flatfish
Chasing fat fish.
What do you see in the sea?
Animals moving free!

Hermit the Crab

Hermit the crab
Had a cute little home,
He carried on his back
Wherever he did roam.
But one day he woke up
And his home was too small,
So he had to go shopping
In the underwater mall.
He found an empty shell
That comfortably would fit.
He moved right in His new home was a hit!

Sea Shell

Sea shell, sea shell,
Sing a song for me;
Sing about the ocean,
Tell me about the sea.

Sea shell, sea shell,
When I hold you near,
I can hear the ocean
Whispering in my ear.


My Magic Shell

Pink shells, white shells, and
shells coloured blue;
Smooth shells, crinkled shells,
old shells and new;
Striped shells, and plain
shells lift by the tide;
My shell is magic - the sea
sings inside.
