The Ocean: Consider the Connections...Educational Activities for Children.
Bierce, Rose, Ed.
This eight-chapter resource book is designed for use by elementary school-age children, teachers, and interested parents. It consists of activities (such as word games, art projects, and experiments) and information which not only provide knowledge but also stimulate creativity and provide entertainment. Areas addressed in the first seven chapters are: beginnings of ocean study; oceans at work (currents, weather, waves, and tides); animals in the ocean; food chains; adaptation; ecosystems; and people and the sea. Each of these chapters contains background information (that teachers and parents may find useful before introducing the chapter topic), a list of activities, and the activities, most of which are designed to allow children an independent and self-directed learning situation. The final chapter provides answers to the activities so that children may correct their own work, a vocabulary list, and a list of books. (JN)
