This worksheet, called 'Sea World Worksheet: Mermaid Pattern', was originally introduced by Scholastic and can as well be downloaded at their website. This is a two-pager presenting a mermaid template that can be transfered by students to paper for coloring and cut as per the pattern lines. Kids can use glitter to decorate the mermaid's tale after coloring it and display the pattern around creative writing assignment. The topics for the assignment can cover seashore dreams, summer plans, marine life or even an imaginary story about a marine animal. Add some fun to the not-so-welcome by children writing activities!
