Marine Science for KidsExploring and Protecting Our Watery World, Includes Cool Careers and 21 Activities 

By Josh and Bethanie Hestermann, Foreword by Stephanie Arne

A colorful, comprehensive, friendly guide to exploring the underwater world

Marine Science for Kids is a colorful, comprehensive, friendly guide to exploring the underwater world. While including all the ocean animals kids love, it delves much deeper into the complete science of aquatic study, including geology, chemistry, and biology in both salt- and freshwater environments and more accurately reflecting the real-world study and practice of aquatic science. Kids discover how and why oceans move, and learn the answers to questions such as “Why is the ocean blue?” They meet cool creatures including sharks and rays, penguins and other seabirds, whales and dolphins, squids and octopuses, and many more. They discover some of the most pressing challenges facing marine environments but are left feeling hopeful that they can use their talents to make a difference. Real-life marine scientists share what inspires them every day so kids can learn more about these exciting careers. Hands-on, cross-curricular activities in each chapter—including science experiments, arts and crafts, edible projects, and group games—make learning fun.
