The A-B-Seas! An Ocean Alphabet Book

School: High Tech Elementary Chula Vista

City/State: San Diego, CA

Grade(s): K

Format(s): Book, Children's book: Alphabet

Subject(s): English Language Arts, Science and Technology, Visual Arts

Project Overview: 

As a part of their project, “The A-B-Seas: A Kindergarten Investigation Of The Importance Of Our Oceans” students wrote this book to get others excited about the amazing life under the ocean and raise awareness about the trouble it is facing. The result of observations of ocean animals, field work, and non-fiction read alouds, this book  is a beautiful look at ocean life.

How This Project Can Be Useful: 

  • An excellent example of interdisciplinary work incorporating science (a study of ocean life and environmentalism), literacy (reading and writing non-fiction, developing descriptive language), and art (multimedia creations by each student)
  • A visually compelling example of high-quality individual student contribution to a collective class product
