For each class, all grades:
Please take attendance on the Class Lists I will fax to the ACES office.
Read the Classroom Guidance Rules aloud to the class.
Read the Learning Target and Introduce the topic of the Marine Biologist career.
Explain that Marine Biologists are scientists who study the ocean, and the fish, ocean mammals, and plants (seaweed, coral), and other life forms in the ocean.
For all grades show one or more of these information links, with photos, and information you can read aloud to the classes, and video links below, and have students turn and talk to a partner, about what they learned that marine biologists were doing in the video, then as a class, call on a few students to share what they learned.
Find the labeled pack of worksheets for each class, and hand out after showing a couple of videos, or reading a book if necessary. Ask the students to take their worksheets home please.

If the internet is not working, you can read the small square ocean fish book to K, 1st, and 2nd grades. You can read and show pictures from some of the older level ocean books to 3rd and 4th grade classes that are up on my white board tray.
There is an ocean fish and mammals sorting card game, my suggestions is that you collect these in packs of four, and keep on my desk, and do the worksheets instead.
