Need a more challenging activity? Have you considered a deep sea adventure for your science scholars ages 6 and up? This is the book where they will not only learn "Fun Facts" about sea creatures, we set the foundation for why they need to lead conservation in your area of our water resources. Unlock the mysteries of the ocean by learning new vocabulary words.
Join Jamel as he travels by airplane to Atlanta Georgia to visit his grandparents and share in his grandmother’s deep sea adventure she never had. You will explore more about her African origins, culture and the foods of Nana’s Gullah Geechee culture. Nana tells her grandson, Jamel about catching shrimp, crab, digging for clam and chipping oysters at the oyster reef, when she was a little girl. She went with her sister to catch their dinner daily on the Beaufort, South Carolina coast. There were no super markets, or chains of mega grocery stores in those days.
If you live in a land-locked location, want to immerse yourself in the worlds oceans, get practice with conversational punctuation, contractions then read along with Jamel and his Nana on their 1st Deep Sea Adventure at the Georgia Aquarium. Many children don’t know scientific names or the earth’s continents, names of the oceans or seas. They can use this activity book to learn about the coastal habitat and travels of the sea creatures across the hemispheres. We also discuss the destructive forces of the tsunami, underwater earthquakes and typhoons. See what Nana was taught to do as a child, when she was faced with fears or natural disasters, it still works today. Their faith has stood the test of 5 generations. E kwere m i me oke m.
