PRINT Oceanography Primary Level Unit Study


Let's go on an undersea adventure!  This unit study is designed to guide elementary-aged learners aged 6-12 on an in-depth Oceanography exploration that will not only provide a thorough study of the subject at hand, but will also involve students in the process through immersive, experiential learning opportunities. Consistent, gentle, and easy-to-follow structure encourages internalization and personal connection with each module.

This unit study will be delivered to your door in printed format as a coil-bound, full-color book with a glossy cover ready for use. Click here to purchase the digital PDF version of this unit study. The book is non-consumable, meaning that writing will be done in a separate notebook or in your preferred Harbor + Sprout Companion Notebook available in either physical print or digital PDF format.

Be sure to add the Oceanography Primary Level Workbook, available in both digital PDF and physical print formats! These workbooks are not required to complete the unit study; however, they add enriching dimension to the learning experience.

This unit study includes 20 modules. Each module is made up of 3 parts:

  1. Information: This is the reading portion of the module. The reading can be completed independently or with help from an adult. You may take one day or more to complete the reading.
  2. Notebooking Prompts: In the notebooking section of each module, you will have the opportunity to reflect on your reading in a way that is unique to you. 
  3. Activities: Each module contains a selection of activities and hands-on learning experiences to choose from. These activities span the range of learning styles and are meant to be completed at whatever pace feels most comfortable to you.
