Ocean Science Journal for Grades K-5

This journal provides ten writing prompts and engagement activities based on the seven Ocean Literacy Essential Principles for use by educators and parents with their students and children.

Each week, one Ocean Literacy Essential Principle is highlighted with a fact page and supplemental activity. The prompts are written to be used weekly; however, they can be used more or less frequently depending on the needs of the user. In addition, the prompts are standalone concepts and can be used in or out of sequence. The journals are formatted in order to be used digitally or printed as a hard copy.
