The kids are very excited. I went over the chapters with them and we tried to pick out a few to "skip" because of time restraints but they wanted them all! We went over all 14 chapters!
So we are just going to jump in and DO! I am sure we won't get to everything, but we will do all we can!
We started today with just the discussion of what we are doing.
I had gotten a playdough sea set, so the kids set to work on their own sea bed!
They played with playdough for about an hour! Then after dinner they started again-- they are making a model of the ocean in a box. We will continue working on it through out the unit.
Next we snuggled up on the couch to begin our unit with NONE OTHER THAN:
We watched The Living Seas
We are also reading Down, Down, Down by Steven Jenkins
Man Fish: The story of Jacques Cousteau
The copywork for this chapter is:
Praise the Lord from the earth, you great sea creatures and all ocean depths. ---- Psalm 148:7
