    Even if you don't live anywhere near the ocean, your kids can still explore the amazing properties of earth's great watery expanse, along with the unique plants and animals that inhabit it. This Kids Can! activity book introduces major ocean and ocean life concepts, followed up with simple hands-on investigations that kids can perform, often with minimal adult help. The text is written in a clear, easy-to-read style, broken up by subject headings, more like a magazine format than in textbook form, and accompanied by playful cartoons of children and sea animals. The investigations use commonly found items, and are typically simple, easy to perform (they obviously know it's hard to keep a kid's interest for very long!) and complement the preceding text to reinforce concepts so the kids can "see" it, rather than just learn about it. For instance, after learning about different shapes and types of fish, they make fish models of clay on a string, and pull them through the water to see which shape creates the least resistance, and then fill up small balloons, with air, oil and water, imitating fish with air bladders, fish without, and sharks to see which has the greatest and least buoyancy when it comes to swimming. Kids love taking an investigative approach to science, why not throw in some ocean books from the library, and make it a science unit?
