Ney, Catherine R.
Ocean Environments for Grade 5 is a 12-week interdisciplinary ocean environmental unit designed for teachers to use with their students. The unit emphasizes investigation and understanding of our ocean environments, including their geological, physical, and biological characteristics. It also stresses awareness of public policy decisions related to the assessment of marine organism populations and pollution prevention. The 30 lessons contained within cover a number of topics including matter, sound transmission, biological characteristics of earth, geological characteristics of earth, cells, insulation, and ocean environments. The lessons are interdisciplinary in their approach, meeting objectives from science, mathematics, oral language, reading, literature, writing, research skills, and technology. (DDR)
