Water Grade 3

This unit actually turned out to be even shorter than I had planned. It was going to include the differences between fresh & salt water and the animals that live in each, bioluminescence, and a review of the tides. However, he has decided to do Marine Biology next year, so that will all be covered then. It ended up being just a bit of review of surface tension, states of matter, the properties of water & what it can do.
