Ocean Notebook - Companion to Ocean Anatomy by Julia Rothman



Have your kids ever wondered what the difference is between a dolphin and a porpoise? Do they love to study sharks, whales, and other creatures of the deep?

Many homeschooling families incorporate the study of ocean life into their lessons. We are so excited that Storey Publishing has released Ocean Anatomy and are looking forward to using it in our studies.

Because Ocean Anatomy joins a series of books that include Nature AnatomyFarm Anatomy, and more, which are popular books on homeschool shelves, we have created a notebook to accompany it, with the publisher’s permission.

Ocean Anatomy is a secular book and our companion notebook can be used with any worldview (see note below). Although this notebook is very flexible and can be adapted for younger and older children, it is best suited to grades 3-8.

This notebook will follow along with the topics in the book and include places for written narration of information read, sketches of objects found in the ocean, labeling and diagramming, and more.

We have included links in the Ocean Notebook for extra free printables and resources to expand your study on individual topics.

Like our other open & go curriculum, there is no prep-work involved – you simply grab your copy of the book and your notebooking journal and work at your own pace.

We also have notebook companions for other volumes in the Julia Rothman Series. Click here to view them.

NOTE: We are young earth creationists and have found it difficult to use many nature and science books without having to skim over at least one reference to age of earth. We have highlighted these sections for you in the beginning of the notebook and have not included questions related to them so you can skip over them if you choose.

    This is the third of the Julia Rothman series that my 9 year-old daughter has done and she loves doing it. She loves to draw and learn about the different aspects of marine life. Next she wants to do the notebook pages that go with the Master books Ocean Book. Thank you for providing these resources that make learning fun.

    I’m so exited to add this to our homeschool curriculum lineup. I ordered the Anatomy Notebook Collection, and it looks awesome! I’m so grateful for these wonderful notebooks so that my kids can read and glean information from wonderful books like the Julia Rothman Collection. Thank you for the work you do setting up these notebooks!

    I am in love with the Julia Rothman books but wasn’t sure how to go about incorporating them into our homeschool day. Enter Daily Skill Building Notebook. This journal is amazing. The amount of time that must have gone into building this notebook is unbelievable. The Farm book was the first one I purchased and I was so blown away I knew I had to get the Ocean and Food Anatomy journals as well. My 11 and 14 year olds have really enjoyed these journals! I highly recommend them!

    The Julia Rothman Books are beautiful. I so appreciate the open and go companion notebooks. We use these as a supplement to our Master Books, and it is perfect! My kids are 10 & 12 and both enjoy it.

    I am not sure why I put off buying this. The books are beautiful and so is this journal to do with it.

    My two girls (ages 17 and 9) have both loved it.

    Our middle schooler isn’t a huge fan of school, but he loves visiting the ocean! He fancies himself something of a marine biologist, so when we saw Ocean Anatomy and this accompanying workbook, we gave it a go. This workbook helps walk you through the Julia Rothman text – you’ll definitely need it – letting student re-create drawings and write notes from the text to help reinforce concepts covered…..and he loved it!

Jessica from The Waldock Way has a great blog post discussing how to use notebook companions alongside the Julia Rothman Collection to really get the most out of the beautifully illustrated books. We also wrote about how to use the Julia Rothman Series for science at our sister site, www.homeschoolgiveaways.com
