The children have heard the legend of Roch Beach once before. The teacher tells it again and they have a conversation about it. So everybody understands it.
Then teachers shows two big pictures of the mermaid. Now every child has to choos if they want to be the farmer or the fishermen. Some children couldn't decide like the mermaid. But in the end everybody made a choice. Then they had to draw the things that are good on land or in the sea.
Now we make the fishing hook. At first we observe and investigate real fishing hook. Then everybody tries to make one themselves. They had to tie the string to the wood sticks (with little help of teacher and assistant). On the end of the string they made little worm from modelling clay. Then everybody got a piece of paper and they draw fishes on it. And fishing game was ready. They put fishes into a box and started fishing with fishing hook.
