In this publication of Spigot Science, Oceans, we help students explore the mysteries of the deep from many perspectives. In addition to learning the science of tides and ocean motion, they will learn all about what lives in the deep layers of the oceans and where all the oceans are located.
In the Language Arts Connection, students will write an ocean myth, and then rewrite a scientifically correct version. In the Social Studies Connection, they will learn about the ocean census. They will consider ocean safety in Health Connections, and in the Arts Connection, they will sing sea shanties and view ocean statuary.
Of course, our regular monthly feature segments focus on oceans too. Students will learn to think deeply as they Think Like a Scientist and learn about the life of Jacques Cousteau in Scientists Are People Too. In our Library Connection they will read ocean book reviews relevant to upper elementary and middle school students.
There is so much to learn about these waters that encompass 70 percent of our planet.
