This year in the PEP classroom our focus will be scientific “ologies”. We will cover marine biology, geology, zoology, and meteorology. To begin this unit, we will discuss coral reefs, tide pools, kelp Forrest, open ocean, sea grass meadow, and jobs/careers/organizations involving marine biology. We will do a novel study this year in lieu of Scholastic News. We will be reading Where is the Great Barrier Reef? and Where are the Galápagos Islands?
