Ocean Animals</a> by award-winning children's author, Lisa Caprelli, is a fun, colorful exploration of sea life and poetry. Young readers will learn about various underwater creatures through creative haiku and beautiful illustrations. The Common Core State Standards encourage children to learn about poem structure, rhythm and patterns by Grade 4. Ocean Animals is a great resource for teaching these concepts as well as other topics such as oceanography and marine biology.

The Ocean Animals activities were designed to meet learning standards (CCSS and NGSS) such as:

  • Recognize common types of texts (e.g., storybooks, poems)

  • Explain major differences between poems, drama, and prose, and refer to the structural elements of poems (e.g., verse, rhythm, meter)

  • Describe how words and phrases (e.g., regular beats, alliteration, rhymes, repeated lines) supply rhythm and meaning in a story, poem, or song

  • Use illustrations and details in a story to describe its characters, setting, or events

  • Use a model to represent the relationship between the needs of different plants and animals and the places they live. Living things need water, air, and resources from the land, and they live in places that have the things they need.
