School starts for us on Monday and I can’t even begin to tell you how excited Emma and I both are. As we move into her 5th grade year, I wanted to highlight some of the more fun lessons we have planned this year and some that we loved doing last year. To start, I want to show you the oceans of the world unit we did last year. My Emma has a love of all things water and she LOVED learning not just what oceans we have here on Earth, but also about ocean lifeforms and more! She knew about the oceans, but she asked to do a more in depth study on them and I was happy to oblige!
Now before I continue, I do want to say that I make our homeschool units very book heavy and very interactive and this homeschool unit study is no different. My Emma gets really bored and goes a bit off the wall if I do too many worksheets all at once. Because of this, you’ll notice a lot of books, movies and things mixed in with printables and such. This particular unit took us more than a few weeks. I couldn’t tell you exactly how long though because we took our time learning it and having fun. Also, keep in mind that my Emma is 10 so these items probably won’t work for younger kids.

We had a blast with this unit! My Emma LOVED the models and the movies are fantastic! Even though we did the unit last year, I still find her sitting and reading the books! I’m certain that your kids will have just as much fun learning about the oceans and the things in them!
