This biography does a really good job in depicting the life of Jacques Cousteau. A famous oceanographer. The author even offers a not at the end of the book. A great read for children as the author tells the story of how this man‘s initial interests as a child become his reality!

This (B) was written by Jennifer Berne, illustrations by Eric Puybaret. Jacques Cousteau grew up with love for documenting the world around him and was fascinated by the ocean. This book tells the story of his life, and his path to becoming an Ocean Explorer. He made large strides in the marine world, documenting the progression of humans' impact on sea life. Speaking to World leaders all the wat to kids on ways to help the ocean. #ucflae3414f19

Lrobertson In the classroom: RA. Showing the students the short video on youtube( https://youtu.be/9z08SD5iRuk ) before would give students some prior knowledge. Also, this video on youtube ( https://youtu.be/ryBhIJXiRlc) has footage from Jacques explorations. Using EL Strategy 28: Provides biographies of significant men and women from different countries. As well as UDL 3.3: Guide information processing and visualization. (edited) 3mo
DrSpalding Your English learner strategy is spot on! This book would be an excellent read aloud during a science/ocean unit. He is fascinating. What an excellent idea to include videos to provide prior knowledge. Excellent post.❤️📚 3mo

Biography and was written in 2008. This story is about the life of jacques cousteau and his love of water and the oceans. Ever sense he was a little boy he loved being in the water. He and friends would dive down and see what the ocean had in store for them. He would bring down his camera and record everything he could for films and was a advocate for cleaning up the oceans.

"Manfish" (B) written by Jennifer Berne and illustrated by Eric Puybaret is a nonfiction picture book telling the story of Jacques Cousteau and his contributions to marine biology. The pictures show how Jacques grows up to merge his love for inventing, film and the ocean. He invents the aqualung and brings underwater footage to the world. Great option for Storytelling because of it's clear plot and great pictures. #lae3414sp19

dayuso1 Teachers can use UDL strategy Optimize Choice and Autonomy (7.1). Students would write a story about where they would go and what they would do if they were a scuba diver. Teachers can help all students including ELLs by having the class physically pretend they are scuba divers in the ocean, which also helps ELLs to grasp the concept (ESOL 18). 9mo
dayuso1 As an extension resource, teachers can show clips from Cousteau's actual films. An example is linked below, found easily through YouTube. https://youtu.be/hM9pa5JQmz0 9mo
