SE L2 The Oceans


The Oceans cover 70 percent of our planet. Students learn about great mountain ranges on the ocean floors, coral reefs, and ecosystems that had never been seen before the 1970s. Lessons in this unit include tide pools, coral reefs, fantastic fish, zones of life, tsunamis and much more.

There are a total of 16 lessons about the ocean. Each lesson also has a fun and interesting science activity that accompanies the lesson. Activities include creating an egg carton coral reef, making a tide pool game and studying how tsunami barriers protect our seashores.

The textbook is designed to take six weeks to finish when students complete three lessons per week. We combine our Level 2 Earth Science, Space and The Oceans textbooks for a semester of Earth Science credit. All six of the Level 2 units can be completed for a year of Earth Science credit.

I feel like I gush when I write reviews for Ring of FIre Science but all their Earth Science Units really appeal to me because of the balance of the way in which they present the materials. I really love their experiments because they have the light [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
