    I know its too late this year but... when I did ocean unit..I had a small plastic swimming pool from Walmart in my room and filled it with sand. If you have a sand table that will work. I then added lots of seashells. The children were to go and "Find" 20 shells and put them in a bucket. Then they did activties such as arranging them small to large, large to small, sorting them according to size, shape, color. Grouping them rough and smooth.....I also had two large beach umbrellas which I put in reading center with beach towels to lie on while reading....Float and sink activities in water center are always a hit...I also enlarged some pictures of sea animals on large poster board and then had the students measure them in math using unifix blocks or links. I have retired but I sure miss doing these things. Hope this helps next year!!
