For three years now we have gone to the beach for our summer vacation, but, because we live in a landlocked state, there’s not a whole lot of education about ocean animals and their habitats in our schools.
Natural Beach Living has a great way to teach kids about the ocean at home, whether you homeschool or just want to help your ocean-loving kid learn more about it. This marine biology/ocean unit study is full of great ideas such as:
- setting up a loose parts station with an ocean theme
- printables about marine biology and ocean life
- activities such as mazes, line tracing and coloring (the oceanic zones coloring page is beautiful)
It’s a great collection of resources I know my daughter will love.
Do you teach your kids about what’s in the ocean? I’d love it if you’d share any resources you’ve used.
