Students in grades 1, 2 and 3 were part of a unit that recently studied the ocean. Students working with a partner explored the characteristics of a specific layer of the ocean. They researched and wrote a short paragraph describing their assigned layer and the animals that inhabit it. Students selected and illustrated two animals from their layer. A large mural was created displaying their research and drawings. Much was learned about the Twilight Zone, The Midnight Zone, The Abyss, The Trenches, and The Sunlight Zone.
