Under the Sea and in the Air


Key science topics are taught in this intriguing book. Students will discover facts about the ocean, weather, and outer space in simple, easy-to-digest passages.  Each passage is supplemented with fun notebooking pages or hands-on activities or experiments, or both.  It gets kids really trying the science for themselves!

This resource contains over 45 activities and many notebooking pages.  The notebooking pages are repeated in the “Make-Your-Own” Captain’s Log, so this resource is considered non-consumable.  If you are only buying this resource without the Log, your student will need to write in it, and if you have multiple students, you’ll need one copy for each.  134 pages.  This resource is now being printed in stunning full color!
