For grade 5 science, learning about oceans.
This is a great website for learning about oceans. It is really colorful and is designed for students. It has pictures and really neat facts about ocean life on a reef. This site comes from Australia, but it would be great if students had to research different parts of the ocean. It is also a neat site for them because our Canadian coasts don't have as much colour. The different temps allow for different types of marine life. I think this site would be very useful in illustrating the types of marine life found in the southern hemisphere. This site is really interactive, and allows for lot's of exploration. It would be able to hold the attention of a grade five student. This site has lots of information to learn from and lot's of neat links.
