Ocean Zones Foldable
Using PebbleGo and BrainPopJr., we researched the different zones found in the ocean along with examples of animals that live in those zones. We discussed how certain animals had to adapt to their environment because of the cold water or lack of light. To help the students remember the different ocean zones and the animals that live there, they created a four-tier foldable. One the top flap they colored the water a lighter color, indicating it is the closest to the sun, and then each following flap was gradually darker. They glued the name of the zone along with a brief description of the zone, which we read together as a class. They then chose animals that can be found in each zone to glue down. Fellow teachers, if you would like a copy of the printouts that go on the foldable, feel free to email me. I would be happy to share!
