For this unit I again hit up ducksters.com for the ground work information and then made up some simple fact sheets for the girls notebooks. This weeks unit had lots of possible hands on activities so we went with it.
We started with covering what the four main Marine biomes are and drawing picture to represent them.
Then we did the same with the lake ecosystems.
Our books for this unit included What If There Were No Sea Otters, Dark Day In The Deep Sea, and Dark Day In The Deep Sea Fact Tracker.
We learned about vertebrates and invertebrates while working on making paper jellyfish.
We of course could not study the Marine biome without a trip to our local aquarium to see and touch some real marine animals!
Total for this unit was about $4 for craft supplies thanks to library books and a gifted trip to the aquarium.
If you are doing a study of the Marine biome I would love to hear about it!
