    Octopus Activities for Kids
    Octopuses are sea animals famous for their rounded bodies, bulging eyes, and eight long arms. They live in all the world’s oceans but are especially abundant in warm, tropical waters. Octopuses, like their cousin, the squid, are often considered “monsters of the deep,” though some species, or types, occupy relatively shallow waters. Most octopuses stay along the ocean’s floor, although some species are pelagic, which means they live near the water’s surface. Other octopus species live in deep, dark waters, rising from below at dawn and dusk to search for food. Download the Octopus activities booklet now and have fun  !

The largest confirmed individual had a length of 12.65 m (41.5 ft) and a weight of about 21.5 t (47,000 lb).The whale shark holds many records for size in the animal kingdom, most notably being by far the largest living non-mammalian vertebrate.  The whale shark is found in open waters of the tropical oceans and is rarely found in water below 21 °C (70 °F).[2] Modeling suggests a lifespan of about 70 years, but measurements have proven difficult.  Whale sharks have very large mouths and are filter feeders, which is a feeding mode that occurs in only two other sharks, the mega mouth shark and the basking shark. They feed almost exclusively on plankton and are not known to pose a threat to humans. The species was distinguished in April 1828 after the harpooning of a 4.6 m (15 ft) specimen in Table Bay, South Africa. Andrew Smith, a military doctor associated with British troops stationed...

The great white shark (Carcharodon carcharias), also known as the great white, white shark or white pointer, is a species of large mackerel shark which can be found in the coastal surface waters of all the major oceans. The great white shark is notable for its size, with larger female individuals growing to 6.1 m (20 ft) in length and 1,905 kg (4,200 lb) in weight at maturity.[3][4][5] However most are smaller, males measuring 3.4 to 4.0 m (11 to 13 ft) and females 4.6 to 4.9 m (15 to 16 ft) on average.[5][6] According to a 2014 study the lifespan of great white sharks is estimated to be as long as 70 years or more, well above previous estimates,[7] making it one of the longest lived cartilaginous fish currently known.[8] According to the same study, male great white sharks take 26 years to reach sexual maturity, while the females take 33 years to be ready to produce offspring.[9] Great white sharks can swim at speeds of over 56 km/h (35 mph),[10] and can swim to depths...

  • Sea Turtle Activity Booklet

    Sea Turtle Activity Booklet
    Sea Turtle Booklet   The majority of a sea turtle's body is protected by its shell. The turtle's shell is divided into two sections: the carapace (the dorsal portion) and the plastron (the ventral portion). The shell is made up of smaller plates called scutes. The leatherback is the only sea turtle that does not have a hard shell. Instead, it bears a mosaic of bony plates beneath its leathery skin. In general, sea turtles have a more fusiform body plan than their terrestrial or freshwater counterparts. The reduced volume of a fusiform (tapering at both ends) body means sea turtles can not retract their head, legs, and arms into their shells for protection like other turtles can.  However this more stream-lined body plan reduces drag in the water and allows the turtle to swim more easily. The leatherback is the largest species of sea turtle. Measuring 2–3 meters (6–9 ft) in length, and 1-1.5 m (3–5 ft) in width, weighing up to 700 kilograms (1500 lb).... Read More...

    What Lives In The Ocean? Colored Version and Black and White Download
    The Atlantic Ocean is comprised of saltwater and is quite warm when compared with other oceans, providing ideal conditions for a host of diverse animal species. As the Atlantic Ocean is the second-largest ocean in the world, covering approximately 20 percent of the Earth's surface, it is able to support a multitude of animals as their habitat. Many sea mammals, such as whales, dolphins and seals, migrate to and from the Atlantic Ocean each year. During the summer months, these species travel to colder waters to find rich feeding grounds and to build up their bodily stores of fat for the coming winter. They return from the colder Polar regions to the warmer waters of the Atlantic Ocean in the winter months in order to mate and rear their young.

    Sea Turtle Booklet for Kids
    Basic Facts About Sea Turtles Sea turtles are one of the Earth's most ancient creatures. The seven species that can be found today have been around for 110  million years, since the time of the dinosaurs. The sea turtle's shell, or "carapace" is streamlined for swimming through the water. Unlike other turtles, sea turtles cannot retract their legs and head into their shells. Their color varies between yellow, greenish and black depending on the species. Download Booklet Here! Diet What sea turtles eat depends on the subspecies, but some common items include jellyfish, seaweed, crabs, shrimp, sponges, snails, algae and mollusks. Population It is difficult to find population numbers for sea turtles because male and juvenile sea turtles do not return to shore once they hatch and reach the ocean, which makes it hard to keep track of them. Range Did You Know? Green sea turtles can stay under water for as long as five hours even though the... Read More...

Really, there are two main things that you have to consider when you make graphs.  One is subject matter: What are you graphing? The second is format:  How are you going to display your graph?

Nemo and his dad, Marlin, are ocellaris clownfish, also called false clownfish or clown anemonefish. Anemonefish are so-named for the sea anemones in which they make their homes. There are 28 species of anemonefish, and they come in many colors, such as pink, red, yellow, black, brown and multi-colored stripes. Size & description Most false clownfish are orange with three white bands on the head and body. The white bands are outlined in black.

    Snowman Letter Matching Activity Worksheet
    Snowman Alphabet Matching Worksheet Alphabetic Recognition Alphabetic recognition is sometimes called letter recognition or letter identification, but all three terms have the same meaning. They refer to the ability to visually recognize letters of the alphabet. This includes the ability to name each letter and match that letter name with its written form, both upper and lower case, and in both manuscript and cursive. Alphabet recognition also includes the ability to distinguish between similar looking letters, like C/G, M/W, d/b and p/q. Letter recognition is important because it enables beginning readers to figure out how printed text is associated with the spoken language. Having a mastery of letter names can make learning letter sounds easier for young readers. The sounds of many letter names are closely related to the sound the letter sounds. For example, say “d” and you will hear the /d/ sound. Say “m” and you will hear the /m/ sound. Many letters of the alphabet follow this,... Read More...

    Snowman Color Fun!
    Snowman Color Fun It's that time of the year where the cold winds blow and winter is in full swing. Kids love playing in the snow and they love when school is cancelled due to inclement weather. We can all agree that the number one reason kids love winter so much is because they get to make snowmen everywhere they go. One in your back yard, one in the school yard, one on the way to their friend’s place … it’s impossible to stop a child’s creativity during the snowy season! The downside of winter are, of course, the short days, and too cold to go outside. The weather outside may be frightful, but we’ve come up with some fun activities to do during a cold winters day. The Adventures of Scuba Jack has lots of fun activities for kids. Just download our crafts directly from our website for hours of fun participating in engaging, wintery activities.

    Hair Raising Preschool Science
    Hair-Raising Preschool Science! Zap! Winter can be a shocking time as we shuffle through our dry, heated homes in our stocking feet or slippers, across the carpeted floor. Or maybe you notice more often as you slide out of the car in your puffy down coat, and then touch the door...zap! Why do we get these little shocks? Why does your hair stand up when you pull a sweater over your head? These might be questions your young child has this time of year. Turns out, the science behind these little zaps can actually be fun and less shocking, if you have the right supplies. Here is an easy science investigation to try in your classroom or at home.

    Sink or Float Science Experiment
    Sink and Float: Science That Leaves Them Begging for More! Printable Worksheet: sink_float_printable_Nov17 (1) As an early childhood educator, it is always a good idea to have some engaging lessons for when the weather is too chilly or inclement to head outdoors. Exploring the idea of sinking and floating is super fun and sets a firm foundation for many science concepts that will be important as children grow older. Background: Sinking and Floating Science Learning what sinks and floats in water builds a strong foundation in science concepts such as: density, buoyancy and properties of matter. Although you may not use these terms with young students, their experiences exploring sinking and floating will help scaffold future learning. Feeling shaky on your science? Although it would not be age-appropriate to present this information to Preschool or Kindergarten aged students, here is some science background to help you understand the science concepts.

    The Benefits of Homeschooling With The Adventures of Scuba Jack
    The Benefits of Homeschooling with The Adventures of Scuba Jack Many parents of young children are considering homeschooling today. While making the choice to homeschool can be overwhelming, parents considering this path should know they are not alone. In 2011, there were over 2 million American homeschooled students, with that number increasing about 2%-8% each year since. Homeschooling families are diverse in their ethnic backgrounds, political affiliations, income levels, education levels, and reasons for homeschooling. These reasons can include, but are not limited to: • Being able to individualize the curriculum for each child, • Having the opportunity to enhance family relationships, • Being able to take the classroom “on the road,” not being held captive to a specific location, and • Having options to use teaching methods that are not typical in institutional schools Further, many families choose to homeschool to foster their child’s academic success. Statistics show that homeschooled students score above average on achievement and college admissions... Read More...

    It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year, Said No Teacher Ever
    It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year Everyone has heard the catchy Christmas song by Andy Williams, but it’s also the most wonderful time of the year for students across the globe. The holiday season is officially upon us. And with it brings a combination of headaches and joy for all the teachers as well. Trying to contain all the kids’ excitement and actually have them focus on learning a bit is a difficult task. Listed below are a few days that are more challenging than others around this time of year. The Day Before Thanksgiving Thanksgiving is a day to give thanks for all that we have in our lives. The day before Thanksgiving is a day that teachers somehow just have to survive. One after another, students show up at your desk informing you on what they have planned for the next day.

    Introducing Solid Foods To A Child’s Diet-Stress Free Baby Food
    Stress-Free Baby Food-Introducing Solid Foods To A Child's Diet I have written before about some common parenting stressors (namely sleep and potty training) that, in most cases, tend to work themselves out with little to no parental intervention. Let’s go ahead and add baby food to that list! You can’t get much more basic than eating, pooping and sleeping, and kids are typically going to master all of these skills eventually regardless of what we do (or do not do) to encourage them. I will discuss how to introduce solid foods to a child's diet and how it can be stress free. Now that my youngest daughter is approaching the 6-month mark (say it ain’t so!), I have been starting to think about how I would like to approach her introduction to solid foods. With both girls, I have thankfully had access to the resources, information, support, and anatomy necessary to make breastfeeding successful. Because the nutritional content of breastmilk...

    Happy Thanksgiving from the Adventures of Scuba Jack
    Happy Thanksgiving from The Adventures of Scuba Jack Thanksgiving Day is traditionally a day for families and friends to get together for a special meal. The meal often includes a turkey, stuffing, potatoes, cranberry sauce, gravy, pumpkin pie, and vegetables. Thanksgiving Day is a time for many people to give thanks for what they have.  Also, it's a day that's set as a reminder for us to be grateful. Thanksgiving is a special holiday: a whole day focused on spending time with loved ones and being thankful, without much of the commercialism that has crept into many other holidays. But before you pull up to the table to enjoy your delicious Thanksgiving feast, consider the opportunities this day presents to teach children about the important values of Thanksgiving, such as thankfulness, gratitude, and family.

    Halloween Treats That Are Fun to Eat
    Halloween Treats That Are Fun to Eat Halloween is a fun time of the year for parties and gatherings. It is a time of year for costumes and trick or treating. I just came back from a day in Salem, Massachusetts and my son and I had an amazing time. We walked around and learned some history, ate some great Mexican food and enjoyed a candlelit tour. The decorations were amazing and ghouls were lurking on every street corner if you dared to take a picture with one. We were walking down a street passed the old cemetery and saw some fun Haunted Houses to send a shiver down your spine. My 12 year old son opted out of these frightening experiences. Halloween is in full-swing, and while kids love to dress in costumes and cause mischief, parents dread the thought of all the leftover candy and the tremendous amount of calories that accompany the day. But Halloween is actually... Read More...

    Cloth Diapering Made Easy
    Cloth Diapering Made Easy If you’ve ever thought about trying cloth diapers, my advice is to DO IT! We’re on our second kid in cloth diapers, and I still love them as much as I did the first time around. Why? - Cloth diapers are cheaper than disposable diapers. - Cloth diapers produce less waste and are better for the environment. - Cloth diapers give you the peace of mind of knowing exactly what you have resting 24/7 against your baby’s most sensitive parts. Now, if you start trying to shop for cloth diapers online, you will likely fall down a rabbit hole of adorable $25+ all-in-one diapers with the most beautiful prints you have ever seen. These diapers are the most like disposable diapers in shape and function, and they require very little guesswork since the waterproof cover is attached to the absorbent diaper. These make good diapers for a babysitter or daycare, but for everyday use … RESIST... Read More...

    St. Patrick’s Day Worksheets for Kids!
    Saint Patrick's Day is celebrated each year on March 17th. In Ireland, Saint Patrick's Day is both a holy day and a national holiday. Saint Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland as he was the one who brought Christianity to the Irish. According to legend, Saint Patrick used a shamrock to explain about God. The shamrock, which looks like clover, has three leaves on each stem. Saint Patrick told the people that the shamrock was like the idea of the Trinity, that in the one God there are three divine beings: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. The shamrock was sacred to the Druids, so Saint Patrick's use of it in explaining the trinity was very wise. Although it began in Ireland, Saint Patrick's Day is celebrated in countries around the world. People with Irish heritage remind themselves of the beautiful green countryside of Ireland by wearing green and taking part in the festivities. Some of it’s traditions are: Parades - Parades are oftenly... Read More...
