Our Ocean Planet – Labelling the Earth’s Oceans
I made this activity as a part of my multi-age unit called ‘Our Ocean Planet.’ I used this activity in my first lesson after my students had finished their “What I Know” about the oceans of our planet. I wanted students to be able to label the oceans using instructional information which is given to them in this particular activity e.g. label the Southern Ocean, the ocean that borders Antarctica.
Students need to draw a compass and label the points to help them navigate the information given to them. You could also ask students to label the continents in this activity.
I wanted my students to see by the time they had finished this activity where the worlds’ five major oceans are located because my whole unit was on the Oceans and I figured that it was important for my students to know their names and locations from the very beginning of the unit.
This activity, once completed can serve as a reminder as to where particular oceans are located, I found myself drawing the students back to this sheet when we were talking about a particular ocean.
