Oceans (lapbook freebie!)
Okay, we’ve finished up oceans. Of course all the links we used for our studies are found on the Links to All Things Free for Homeschoolers blog. Go to the Earth Science page (under Science) and scroll down to Oceans (next main heading after Earth).
Week one we used this link to study about oceans and the kids made some lapbook pieces. They made some on their own and used some from practical pages. These lapbook pieces were hung up on our black outline map of the world on the wall. If I did it again, I would print it out in 16 pages. I printed it out in 9 pages, but I wish now for more space.
We’ll add to our wall-map-lapbook as we study geography and will get a picture to you. You can print out an oversized map here. (I keep the map links on the History page of the Links blog.)
Those of you on the Simply Lapbooks Yahoo Group got this lapbook months ago. We finally got around to using it. This lapbook has some fun pieces. Some of the pieces may be hard for early elementary students to make on their own. I like to divide up the pieces between my kids and give the easier ones to my younger ones. There is a bar graph in this one and the circle is about percentage. There are some extra links about kelp (with online activities) on the Links blog.
Here’s the ocean lapbook to download.
For our hands-on day this week we took ocean soundings. There is a link about this on the Links blog where I got the idea and where you can learn about how they really take soundings. This is how I adapted their idea.
Then they connected the dots on their graph and opened the box to see what it really looked like. I printed out the graph paper from online. You can also find that link under Graphs on the Math page and also I put it on the General Resources page of the Links blog.
