It is almost our favorite time of year, and we are busy getting ready. One of the ways we always start the season off is by talking about beach safety and learning more about the Ocean. Since we live at the beach, water safety, ocean animals, and of course taking care of our environment is huge to us. I hadn’t planned on starting this themed unit so soon, but the weather is great, and we’ve already begun heading to the beach. I also realized I titled these Ocean Preschool Activities when in fact all of my children are enjoying the Ocean Animals Printables and learning more about the Ocean Zones.

Ocean Activities and Printables for Kids
I’m a big fan of Setting up a full themed area for each unit study. This one is a combination because we’ve including math activities, Science, Montessori 3-part cards for ocean animals, Ocean Zones coloring page and Ocean books.
The ocean unit study began with learning more about the five layers of the ocean (also known as Ocean Zones). We started learning about this last year with this amazing Marine Biology Unit Study. I’ve included colored labels for you to enjoy this activity with your kids.
The amazing thing about the ocean is that some creatures and organisms live in each of the zones.
In our homeschooling, we get a lot of use from mason jars. I suggest every homeschooler or teacher keep a case of them handy. To make these Ocean Zones Jars we added light blue and dark blue food coloring. Starting with 1 drop of light blue and adding more as you went down the layers.
