The ocean is such an amazing place to explore! From coral reefs to the deep sea, polar seas, open ocean, beaches, and kelp forests, there are many habitats in the ocean that provide homes for many animals. Developed by our founder, a former marine science teacher, our activities strive to bring the ocean to life for an ocean-themed unit of study, at home for summer fun, or for an ocean-themed party!
