Ocean Unit - Wk: 2 Day 7

Last week we dived straight into a pretty fun ocean unit. This week we are still exploring and learning about Earth's great oceans. Join us each day as I recount the days activities on our blog. 

Today we started with a quote in our journals.

"I am not afraid of storms, for I am learning how to sail my ship"
Louisa May Alcott

We learned about Vasco Da Gama, the water cycle, and sand dollars.

Check out the great resources I found below.

We learned that Sand Dollars are echinoderms (which means "spiny skin") and are related to sea urchins and sea stars.
