Dive In and Learn About the Ocean

Underwater ocean scene

Most of us aren’t traveling far this summer, but you can still take a trip to the ocean! With a book!


Why is ocean water salty? What kinds of creatures live in the ocean? How do people sailing on the ocean know which way to go?  

The ocean is still a vast mystery. In fact, scientists have only explored about 5 percent of the world’s ocean! When kids do some hands-on experiments related to the ocean, they are embarking on a field of science that’s very exciting.

In Oceans and Seas! With 25 Science Projects for Kids bAnita Yasuda, kids ages 7 to 10 are astounded by ocean facts, riveted by the history of the relationship between oceans and humans, and engaged with hands-on science projects that are perfect for summertime fun. Get a taste with a sample chapter and the classroom guide – including science activities kids can do at home.
