Historical scientist Jacques Cousteau

Do you know what the world looks like under the sea? Today, most of us do, thanks to underwater films and pictures. But just 80 years ago, before Jacques Cousteau filmed it, most people had no idea what lay below the ocean’s surface. Thanks to the invention of the ‘Aqua-Lung’ he was able to explore the underwater world and share his findings. This historical biography for year 2 and P3, links to the curriculum topics of living things and habitats and biodiversity and interdependence.

This downloadable reading pack includes:

  • Two differentiated A3 reading spreads for you to print.
