Ocean Habitat Experiment

Talk about the different habitats and animals in the ocean, and how some animals live near the top of the ocean in warmer water (fish, etc), others live lower in cooler water (whales, etc). Do a water temperature experiment, to see how the cold water sinks. Fill a large container with warm water. Fill a small bottle with cold water and add some blue food coloring. Cover the mouth of the bottle and lower it sideways into the large container. Let it go and watch as the cold water sinks and stays at the bottom.
You can also create a mural of ocean habitats, using the following printouts from http://www.learningpage.com:
