Ocean Animals Unit Study Resources

If you’ve been following Modern Homeschool Family for any length of time, you know I’m a huge fan of unit studies. I used them with both of my girls, all the way through high school. Not only are they fun, but integrating one topic throughout your subjects is a great way for your child to fully absorb the subject.

You can use these resources to enrich any curriculum you are using or use them to create your own unit study. I’ve also put together a nice fat package of themed printables you can use too (scroll down). There are 24 pages in all, designed for grades K-2 (though some can be adapted for lower or higher – that’s the beauty of homeschooling!) and include coloring pages, informational worksheets, notebooking pages, puzzles and more!
