Focusing on books that use the sea as their theme, this booklet provides guidelines for teachers on how to integrate marine-related children's literature into the classroom. The first section of the booklet presents brief synopses of eight sea-related books while the second section contains 39 learning center activities, including knot tying, model building, soap carving, weaving, wood construction, and wood painting. Each activity is related to a specific grade level and book and includes a list of required materials, preparatory suggestions for the teacher, and instructions for the students.
