Sea Sums - Science and Math Book for Kids

Sea Sums by Joy N. Hulme is an introduction to an ocean coral reef.



The book could be used as a supplement to a science unit on ocean animals or as a supplement to a math unit on counting and basic addition and subtraction.

The book introduces lots of common and uncommon ocean animals to the reader in a rhyming text. Readers will be introduced to a giant clamshell, crabs, spiny urchins, sponges, lionfish, etc.







The age level is Kindergarten to Grade 2 (ages 5-8).

If you read this book with the kids and would like to follow-up with a craft activity, here are some suggestions from previous posts. Just click on the links below.
