Our Big Blue World

I created this collection for families to do together while schools are closed. I will be making a collection a day while we are out of school. Today we will be exploring our Oceans. The idea is for families to look at the items in the collection and consider what they see in the objects and paintings, what they think, and what they wonder. Families can also watch a free Brainpop video about ocean life as well as videos to learn about scientists studying coral reefs. At the end of the collection I have provided a few ideas for families about what to do next.
