Description

Navigate the oceans with our Oceans of the World Lesson Plan.  This visually engaging lesson informs young students with the definition of “ocean”, as well as identifies and lists some facts of the five oceans of the world, and locates the oceans on a world map.  Engage analytical skills as students compare the breadth, depth and vastness of the oceans of our world with that of space to ponder which scientists may know more about – oceans or space.

Sample Classroom Procedure / Teacher Resources Snippet:

  1. Distribute the “?” page. Ask students to guess what the brown and blue parts of the square represent.
  2. Allow for responses and discussion. If they cannot guess (blue = 70% water/brown = 30% land of the Earth) ask: What is blue, wet, and you can swim in it?  What is brown and sometimes you dig in it or play in it?
  3. Lead the discussion to the oceans and the Earth being covered with approximately 70% water, and the land just 30%, represented by the blue and brown colors on the handout.
  4. Distribute the Oceans of the World content pages. Read and review the information with the students. Use additional resource videos to enhance student understanding and learning.
  5. Distribute the Activity page. Review the instructions. Allow students to shade in each of the continents as well. It should take students a short period of time to complete.
  6. Check and review the students’ completed work.
  7. Distribute the Practice page. Check and review the students’ responses.
  8. In closing, ask students which ocean they would like to visit the most and why. Ask students if scientists know more about oceans or outer space. (The information of some parts of the ocean is unknown as compared with space.)
  9. Allow for responses and discussion.

Excellent! The lesson plan is very well designed. I am using the materials right now to teach my students about the oceans in Spanish. The video is very informative with enough information for the children to process. Great materials!
