Sea Life: A One Week Homeschool Unit

It was one of our final weeks of summer as we made our final bi-weekly trip to the bookstore.  Once each of the kiddos picked out a book they wanted to take home, and I chose a book from the Ordinary People Change the World collection, we made our way to the section with education focused picture books.   B desperately wanted a book titled Amazing Giant Sea Creatures, but I was hesitant.  The book itself was absolutely amazing, but I was not fully confident in my “Under the Sea” knowledge.    Then I considered how very much B had obsessed over Orca Whales all summer, and I decided, that’s what the internet is for I suppose.

In the end, I actually didn’t require much off Wikipedia, the information from this book mixed with lesson plans on my Pinterest board made this one of my favorite weeks I have ever taught.  “But you say that every week Jess.”   ya ya ya, but this was awesome for everyone involved, trust me!
