Ocean All Around

Students play a movement game to promote excitement and build on prior knowledge of the open ocean. During the activity, students exhibit safe-play etiquette while sharing their background knowledge of the open ocean. Upon completion of the movement game, students view a PowerPoint presentation to gain a deeper insight into the characteristics of the open ocean zones. The end of the lesson has the students using elements of art to color a water column in shades and tints of blue and black to represent the different ocean zones.
