Commotion in the Ocean, an integrated, thematic first grade social studies and science unit, focuses on the major oceans and the sea life that inhabit those bodies of water. The unit will address an overarching concept of location and teach students the relationship between their location (i.e. where they live) and the location of the major oceans and animals that live in the oceans. In this unit, students will research an ocean of their choice and several ocean animals. Upon completion of the unit, the students will have a general understanding of where each ocean is located and which animals live in the individual oceans.
