This summer I knew I wanted to add Marine biology to our topics of study. We have spent years enjoying the beach and have had so many amazing natural learning experiences. It was time to take it to the next level. Plus, I really wanted to be able to share more ocean ideas with you. Hopefully, you are excited because these Ocean activities and printables are amazing! Here is a wonderful Ocean Unit Study for Kids.
Since we can’t all vacation together this is the next best thing. This page is full of Ocean Science and Activities for Kids. Enjoy!
Ocean Unit Study for Kids
Do you have a nature table or Science area at your house or school? I’m really hoping you said yes because this is a favorite spot of ours. If you don’t have a designated area you might want to consider adding one occasionally. They can be great for hands-on learning.
Fill your table up with sensory experiences, natural materials, and loose parts for your children to enjoy.
If you’re not familiar with loose parts they are awesome! They can be anything small and loose
Some examples for Ocean inspired loose parts are:
small figures or ocean animals
any natural materials
shells… The list is endless.
Loose parts are great for your child’s imagination. They can play, build, or decorate however they want. They can count with them, enjoy the different textures of them, and create their own story with them.
Bring on the loose parts!
You might have already noticed that we love Natural Beach Living 🙂 Do you love it too? If you aren’t sure yet or need a little nudge to the Loving it side… Check out this fun Ocean Zone Coloring Page.
Water makes up approximately 71% of the Earth’s surface. That water is filled with cool things to learn about and explore. Have fun!
My kids and I had the best time coloring these the other day. I’m sure your child will love it too. If not maybe this can be a mommy coloring page. You know coloring can be a perfect stress reliever activity for mommies.
