The Matchcards are great for teaching and reinforcing the objectives. There is one MatchCard for each of the objectives listed above. The MatchCards give you:

  • A simple diagram of the concept
  • Information pieces to place on the student card as a game
  • Instructor's card with all the answers, a suggested activity for teaching
  • A system for built in review


>Every week you will use the corresponding MatchCard to teach the objective. In addition, the students review 5 previously learned MatchCards two or three times per week. This game-like activity is a favorite activity of many students. The Instructor's Guide gives you more ideas on organizing and using the MatchCards.

Unit Study Log

Your Oceanography Log pulls your entire unit study together by listing resources, activities, projects and objects that were completed. Our MatchCards can be turned into an Ocean Lapbook. Kids will create a product they will love to show off, and continue learning every time they do.
