Our class completed our ocean unit. We learned about the importance of the ocean and its many forms of life. The students did the following activities:

1.  After choosing an ocean animal, each student researched their animal using Enchanted Learning and books checked out from the library.

2.  They wrote a research paragraph about their animal.

3.  They wrote a poem about their ocean animal.

4.  They wrote three fun facts not already mentioned in their report about their animal.

5.  They drew a picture of their animal in its habitat.

6.  They created a three dimensional ocean animal.

7.  They put all their written work together into an ocean report, citing their resources used.
