Summer Unit Study~ Oceans

One of our mid-summer units is going to be studying and learning about the Ocean.

This can be a really broad topic since the ocean alone is such a large ecosystem. However, I have tried to keep things on topic and directed toward more the living creatures that are in the ocean ~

That is not to say that we will not end up on a few "bunny trails" and that is ok too, I will at least have my planner to help put us back on track when we need to ~

Here are some resources I am going to be using:
