read it! write it!
READ IT! Sylvia Earle is a scientist called an Oceanographer. Read about her job here!
WATCH IT! Is there an ocean animal you’re interested in? Choose one of these live cams at the Monterey Bay Aquarium and spend about 5 minutes watching what happens there.
WRITE IT! Now pick one of the animals you see on the live cam. Pretend you are an Ocean scientist. Observe: Take notes about what the animal is, what it’s doing, and what other animals it interacts with. Can you imagine being an animal in this habitat? Experiment with writing from the animal’s point of view.
Leveled learning activity: Instead of writing a paragraph about the animal you observed on the web cam, make a list of three observations you made while watching.
Read about Dr. Sylvia Earle using this adapted book.
