Practicing Circles on the Map

This week my class has been very interested in sea animals, dolphins especially. One morning, one of the children noticed that there were pictures of dolphins on the world map that is hanging in the classroom.

I purchased this map last year and laminated it at my local Lakeshore Learning store (laminating is only 29 cents a foot there).
Since we have been working on our fine motor skills, I gave the children dry erase markers and asked them to circle all of the dolphins on the map. 

Everyone enjoyed this activity so much that we decided to also circle the whales, the sharks, and then all of the animals on the map!

When we were finished, our map looked like this. As you can see, there are lots of beautiful circles on it!
