The Oceans Unit Study is full of adventure and learning fun for the whole family! The cry of the seagull, the steady rhythm of the surf on the shore, the sting of the salt on your face-all of these and more remind us of the tranquility you can experience when visiting the ocean. Children learn so much when at the ocean-from the texture of sand and sandcastle-building, the thrill of watching a hermit crab take a stroll around a tidal pool, the cool touch of the water and the force of the ocean waves as they splash along the shore. From the site of a breaching whale, to the playful rolling of dolphin in the waves, along with the sounds of the creaking and groaning of a wooden ship under full sail on its way to Treasure Island, you and your family will enjoy studying the vast oceans of the world. While using this unit study, your student(s) will explore and learn about: History and exploration of the oceans World geography Oceanography Marine Biology Ocean explorers This unit study includes four weeks of daily lesson plans, using Internet links throughout each lesson.
