Ocean Animal Activities - Teacher Sock Sunday

Hi teacher friends,
Happy #TeacherSockSunday! 

    So I have been dying to wear these jellyfish socks and now I have the perfect teaching resource to go with them! Ocean Animals is such a fun unit to explore towards the end of the school year. In this resource, students learn fun facts about seahorses, jellyfish, whales, sea turtles, dolphins, clams, crabs, and sharks! 

Great Activities for 1st-4rd Grade!

These ocean activities work well with any ocean unit. Also great for substitute teachers to use and for Fun Fridays

This creative writing resource also has an activity where students can create their very own sea creature!
