This is my favorite project of the year. The product contains actual photographs of the finished oceans. All patterns can be turned into tracers or just photocopied.
Nonfiction writing papers are provided which contain a cover sheet, Venn diagram that can be used with any two organisms. Two different lined papers to record facts about organism.
Or fiction stories about ocean animals can be read and fictional stories can be written about each individual ocean. Three different writing papers with two different size lines are provided. Also a bubble map with character, setting, problem and solution is available.
Here is a list of the organisms in this product:
This project makes an awesome display to impress even the art teacher at your school and the students love learning about the organisms under the sea. It is great for any time of the year!
I also just posted a nonfiction writing template for polar bears that includes paper for nonfiction writing about any topic as well as a graphic organizer to help your students develop great paragraph writing.
