Dive in and discover the secrets of the ocean. Marine science, the study of the ocean, the creatures that live within, and the processes that shape it, holds a special wonder that sparks the imagination and stirs a sense of adventure. Since the ocean is not our natural home, it is not as familiar to us as many other topics of study--therein lies the wonder. With concise, complete lesson plans, experiments, and worksheets, introduce your students to the many fascinating aspects of the undersea world. Each book covers a different ecosystem: Book 1-tide pools, Book 2-kelp forests, Book 3-coral reefs.
In addition, this book covers setting up an aquarium, sea water, fish, marine mammals, invertebrates and food chains, as well as detailed background information for teachers on each topic.
Whether you live near the seashore or not, you can easily introduce this relevant, motivating information to your students. Each book also has field activities for those who are able to visit the ocean. These well-organized, informative units will give students important understanding about the ocean.
For more advanced marine science studies, refer to Marine Science Book 2 and Marine Science Book 3.
