Oceans Virtual Field Trip
http://www.tramline.com/sci/oceank/index.htm
Oceans Virtual Field Trip
How many oceans are there? You might say four or five, or you might say seven. In fact, there is one tremendous global ocean which is categorized into regions or "sub oceans". The Pacific Ocean is the largest, containing more than half of the world's water. Oceans cover 70% of the earth's surface and hold 97% of the water on our planet Earth.Of the remaining water, less than 1% is fresh. On average, it is estimated that there are 25,000 species of fish in the oceans! The largest animal is the blue whale which grows to more than 100 feet and weighs the equivalent of 50 full-grown elephants!

Water : 4 2 Explore
http://www.42explore.com/water.htm
This web project provides "four to explore" for each topic.
On each page you'll find definitions, activities, 4 good starting points, and many more links and resources for the thematic topic.
In some cases, we've listed more than four websites on a particular topic. For example, we might provide a few for younger readers and others for more advanced learners.
Each school, classroom, and teacher is unique. As such we didn't try to provide specific activities for particular grade levels. Instead we suggest that teachers explore each link, then design specific, developmentally appropriate activities such as discussion questions, small group activities, or webquests to fit the needs of their curriculum.
The links on this site are safe for children.
