From fish songs to ocean exploration or remembering the names of the world's oceans, find songs to use in your elementary classroom.


This thematic unit offers ocean activities to cover everything from bulletin boards and classroom decor, to student ocean rewards, to journal topics, math exercises, ocean poetry, and more.

UNDER THE SEA::   Find several marine-themed poems to learn with your primary class, along with class projects and hands-on activities to explore ocean life.


LABEL THE WORLD'S OCEANS:  Chances are your elementary students can already point to the Atlantic and the Pacific Oceans, but many still don't recognize the Indian or the Arctic Ocean. Print out this world map and have them practice labeling the oceans, recognizing direction and a compass rose, locate the equator, and learn how to divide the hemispheres.

KINDERGARTEN TIDEPOOL BOXES: Shoeboxes (or other similar small boxes) will be paint- ed to form the "tide pool" backdrop, while egg carton barnacles, clay starfish, and toothpick sea urchins will all find a new home in your student tide pool  projects.

OCEAN DIORAMA: Print out these whales and sharks for your students to color and cut out. Then, using a shoebox, your class can work in groups to create an undersea environment with these diorama instructions.


Students will choose a whale and click for more information. Anatomy, size comparisons, whale food chains, habitats, classification, whale activities, and print- outs are all available at this excellent resource site for the elementary classroom.



 First and second grade students will create a story-- using technology resources--about a sea star that uses the characteristics of a tide pool to help it survive.



Third grade classes will learn about whales and their habitats, creating fact cards and displays of under- water environments to present to the class. Activities are cross-curricular; most can be used for earlier grades as well.



Explore coral reefs in your classroom with the numerous activities offered at this site. Experiment with Float or Sink--journal and record templates are included--fill out coral reef Did You Know printables, or compare environments with Venn Diagrams.
