Oceanography is a fascinating area of study. The oceans cover 3/4ths of the world and affect climate zones across the globe. Oceans are a critical to our world, so they require good care from every person on Earth. Learn more about our awesome oceans through the wide variety of sites below.

These links were gathered by our boys during their Ocean Odyssey First Lego League Robotics quest. It was a fun study! Feel free to use the resources below to help your learning abled kid learn all about Oceanography.

I’ve listed all of the resources we gathered. They are not listed in any particular order. You can glance down through the list to find sites you’d like to check out. There are certainly a lot of sites to choose from!
