Did you know that an octopus has 3 hearts? Or that the crown of every seahorse is as unique as the fingerprints of a human?
I love Ocean Units. I created this resource because I could not find comprehensive (and kid-friendly) information online about the most popular ocean animals. This unit is an exploration into research and informational writing. It features the following:
12 pages of original (and engaging) information about seahorses, bottlenose dolphins, great white sharks, and octopuses.
A cute KWL chart.
A four part graphic organizer to help children organize their information.
Cute stationery on which to write a final draft.
A 50 point scoring rubric to help students monitor their progress.
Templates to make a cute scuba diver craftivity.
This project is a true favorite among my students year after year.
