Whether you live near the ocean or not, your students will love learning about it! The ocean is full of many wonders. With books, pictures, and/or hands-on artifacts you can grab your students attention and interest.
As your students investigate the ocean materials, you can play math and reading ocean-related games. Use the theme to develop writing skills. Read books, fiction, non fiction, and guided readers, to learn more about the ocean as well as to practice reading. Sing songs, design a fish, and make a wave bottle to round out this unit.
The ocean and all that is in it will fascinate your students! For games, directions and other materials, check out our Ocean Thematic Unit: Strategically linked to Common Core Standards.
