Ocean Unit For Kids

If you want to keep the ocean fun going, then why not create an ocean unit for kids? We’ve got some great ideas to keep the kids learning and having fun!

Let your kids explore new worlds and learn with books that are fun to read! Reading aloud not only helps kids develop their vocabulary, but use their imagination as well. Those are some of the reasons we recommend starting a unit off with books!

Below are some fun ocean books for kids:

The Snail and the Whale– Julia Donaldson, author of the famous book The Gruffalo, brings kids another fun book about an unlikely set of friends. Snail and Whale have lots of fun together in this colorful book!

Shark Lady– This children’s book is based upon the true story of Eugenie Clark, aka, The Shark Lady. Learn about her love of sharks, her discoveries, and the inspiring message of going after what you want in life.

The Rainbow Fish -This is a classic children’s book with a wonderful message for children. In it, a fish learns to share his favorite possession, his glittery scales, with his friends!
