Fourth Grade Class
Let us introduce you to our exciting Passport To Knowledge project
Our Passport To Knowledge showcase centers around all things Oceans! As part of this year long study, we learned the in’s and out’s of our five oceans including: the animals that live in it, vessels that explore them, marine habitats and even different marine careers that study and navigate our oceans. We made this study come to life through our 3D animal models, habitat dioramas and our very own mock career day! We had so much fun researching, learning, interviewing and building our showcase and hope that you enjoy it as much as we have!
Our 5 Oceans
Ocean Zone Song
The Sunlight Zone is the most shallow and fun
Which allows for some time in the sun.
Most life is here so be aware
There are fishies everywhere.
There are sharks with pointy teeth,
Maybe even some coral reefs.
This is where the people go for fun
But be careful of being out in too much sun.
Here you can find a lantern fish
But you won’t find them on a dish.
The fish look like they glow in the dark.
In this zone, you won’t find many sharks
There is no sunlight which means no plants
Can photosynthesis happen here.
No it can’t.
The Midnight Zone is the zone that’s next
The marine life here is quite immense
Some can make their own light
Other than that, it’s out of sight
And when your that deep down you will have a lack of air
So only go down there if you aren’t scared.
The Abyss is deep but not the deepest
There’s only one zone right beneath it.
If you swim that far you won’t be breathing .
The temperature is below freezing
The marine life here have no bones
That’s a major characteristic of this zone
In this zone there are no plants
With no sunlight, they just can’t!
Last we’re in the trenches which are heated by the Earth’s core
All the little fish you know are no more
There’s no light,
So don’t go thinking it’s gonna be bright
There are no reefs and there is no light
It’s kinda like a scary Halloween night
We don’t quite know what all is down there
But we know it’s not what we see everywhere
We’re in the end zone
But don’t worry because it’s not gonna grow.
We hope our rap wasn’t too long
But seriously, did you enjoy this song?
We’re three proud teachers of these awesome girls and boys
Hopefully our rapping didn’t cause a lot of noise.
We hope you learned some more about the ocean blue
We’ll see you all later after this project is through.

Marine Careers Presentation
In partnership with Mr. Byrne’s art class, students studied maps of Tybee Island and created a topographic map of it. Each student chose a different perspective of Tybee Island and included unique details to their very own map.
