Ocean Animal Reports

My kids are doing soooo well on their ocean reports! Honestly I'm a little shocked at how amazing they are doing. I know the spelling is terrible on some of them, but they have been doing THE WHOLE THING on their own. I help them find the right page for the information sometimes, but that's it. They are doing the rest on their own.

It's their first research project and I must say, I'm impressed! They are loving it! I'm trying to decide if they should do the same thing with a new animal, or if I should squeeze in one more science unit before the year is over so they can do a different kind of non-fiction project.

This is the sea turtle book my kiddo used:

A Kindergartner: Sea Turtle Report
Both sharks and racoons eat sea turtles. Crabs eat baby turtles.
It eats seaweed, crab, and jellyfish.
They lay eggs on land.

First Grader: Octopus Report

This is one of the books he used. This series is amazing! They have them for all sorts of animals and it's written like a story book instead of a text book, so it's easy for kids to understand basic concepts about the animals.
