Water, Ocean, and Coral Reefs

Over the past dozen or so weeks, I have taught ocean life in our Wednesday science co-op class.  I was blessed to use another teacher's lesson plans for the majority of classes, and only had to write lesson plans for three classes. {a class on water, another on oceans in general, and one on oceanic food webs}  However, I was not able to find all the reference books and read aloud books she had used. Each week, I trekked to our local library in search of suitable books to read aloud. Thankfully our library had a large selection of books on most of the topics we covered in class.
