Ocean Themed Math Activities — Live Learn Literacy

Children love hands-on activities, and since we have been reading underwater books lately, I created a variety of ocean themed math activities to have fun while learning with my kids. 

Read Aloud Books for Under Water Themed Math Activities 

  • Underwater Counting Even Numbers by Jerry Pallotta & David Biedrzycki
  • Ocean Counting Odd Numbers by Jerry Lappotta & Shennen Bersani

As an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases through affiliate links.

OVERVIEW DESCRIPTION of the BOOK Underwater Counting Even Numbers

Read Aloud Focus Skills: 

  • Counting by 2’s 0-50
  • Identifying even numbers 
  • Numeral and word match 0-50 (even numbers only) 

Facts about ocean creatures are weaved perfectly with counting even numbers zero-50 in Underwater Counting Even Numbers by Jerry Pallotta & Davis Biedrzycki. The other ocean counting books we have read lately focused on 1-10, which were perfect for my younger child. But since my preschooler loves a challenge, this book helped push her to count higher numbers. We ended up playing with Underwater Counting & Ocean Counting book activities for days!

OVERVIEW DESCRIPTION of the BOOK Ocean Counting Odd Numbers

Read Aloud Focus Skills for Ocean Counting Odd Numbers  

  • Counting by 2’s with odd numbers 1-49
  • Odd numbers 1-49
  • Numeral and word match 1-49 (odd numbers only) 

Learning to count will be fun and engaging for your child when using the Ocean Counting Odd Numbers book by Jerry Pallotta and Shennen Bersani. My daughter always forgets the numbers 13 and 16 when counting, so I have been trying to help reinforce counting through books lately. This book was an excellent read-aloud for me this week and helped my daughter practice counting correctly multiple times while searching for ocean animals on each page. My kids loved the illustrations in this book, as well as the challenge of counting higher numbers than they usually count. I love a good book that is entertaining or has a great story and can bridge the gap to other subject areas, such as math. 

Ocean Counting Craft for Preschoolers

We made 50 paper fish after reading the above books using paint and a fish-shaped sponge. I know I’ll use this often, so I laminated them and painstakingly cut them each out by hand. Only when I was cutting out the last few fish, I realized I could have used the Cricut machine to do this cutting, and also, I forgot to take a picture of this process to share in this article.

But it was worth the cutting. My kids loved making the number line with just even and then odd numbers to see how long it stretched across the floor. Then we sorted ocean-themed figures and used our number line to sort and count again. Days of hands-on learning made it all worth it in the end! 

Tip– Paint the paper however your child designs, let it dry, laminate the paper, THEN use the Cricut machine to cut out the 50 fish for you. I fit six fish per page, but fitting 10 per page will also work well. It depends on how long you want your number line to reach. We have a long hallway in our house, so making larger fish made it more exciting to see if we could get to the front door while counting. 

Number line Ocean counters and fish 1-50 cards.

Materials for Making Fish Counters 1-50

  • Washable paint (mine are from target– not affiliated link, love these paint colors)
  • Sponge (OPTIONAL- hot glue gun to attach sponge handle)
  • Fish shape (or make your design) 
  • Paint trays or mess-free mats
  • Foam brushes (Michael’s– not affiliated link) 
  • White paper 
  • Laminator & laminating pouches 
  • Scissors OR Cricut machine
  • Permanent Marker OR Cricut markers 

Steps for Making Fish Counters for this Underwater Math Activity

  • We traced the fish toy on the sponge.
  • Handle for sponges was attached with hot glue.

Pictures of how to make fish counters.

*If you are using a Cricut machine, skip the steps listed and see * notes below)

  1. Create your fish shape with a thin sponge.
  2. Cut out the sponge (OPTIONAL: add a handle with leftover sponge & hot glue together) 
  3. Set up paint supplies, mats, and drying area. 
  4. Let your child fill their fish sponge with a layer of paint, covering the entire sponge. We used a foam brush to apply the colors. 
  5. We painted the sponge surface with a mixture of red, orange, purple for our odd number fish and blue, green, and purple for our even number fish design. 
  6. Then lightly press the fish sponge onto the paper. Lift and repeat this process about six times per sheet of paper. 
  7. We reapplied more paint after each page was complete, or every six fish were stamped. 
  8. Set the paper to the side to dry and continue stamping the fish design to create 50 fish. We made 26 of one design and 26 of another pattern. This way, we had even and odd fish that are easily identifiable. 
  9. After the paper is dry completely then laminate each sheet.
  10. Then, cut out each fish by hand. 

* If you use the Cricut machine, paint six sheets of paper one design and another six sheets of paper with another mixture of colors. Make sure the paper is completed painted before drying and laminating.

I turn my setting to thick cardboard and cut my laminated paper. Try cutting one fish out first and see if you like the size before cutting all 50 counters. 

Sea Creatures Number line Counting 1-50 Activity 

After reading the book Ocean Counting Odd Numbers by Jerry Pallotta & Shennen Berani, we made a number line counting 1-50. We made a pattern to represent odd and even numbers. This was a engaging way to practice AB patterns for my children.

Simple play set up for read aloud and counting activities.

Math Skills Practiced During this Ocean Number Activity

  • AB Pattern identification
  • Counting by 2’s
  • Identifying odd and even numbers 
  • Practice counting 1-50 

Materials for Sea Creature Number Line Counting 

  • Ocean animal counters (I used the ones from Lakeshore Learning– not an affiliate link) 
  • Number flashcards 1-50 (Fish Counters from above craft) 
  • Sorting trays (We love ours from Lakeshore Learning– not affiliated link)
  • Pointers

Steps for Number Counting Activity with Ocean Counters Odd vs. Even Numbers: 

  1. Form a pile of ocean counters on the floor and instruct children to sort them by color and then shape using sorting trays.
  2. Then using number flashcards, make a number line on the ground near the pile from 1-10. Our cards are different for even and odd numbers for easier identifying.
  3. Then have your child place the counters below the number line numbers to represent the number with the ocean counters. For example, one sea turtle, two starfish, three stingrays, etc.
  4. Then pull away the even numbers from the line to show just the odd numbers 1,3,5,7,9.
  5. Let your child practice counting by 2’s to count 1-10 using the number line created.

Sorting, patterns, and counting activities.

Steps for Odd Number Counting 1-49 Activity with Ocean Counters: 

  1. Form a pile of ocean counters on the floor and instruct children to sort them by shape or color.
  2. Then using number flashcards, make a number line on the ground near the pile from 1-49, using only odd numbers. 
  3. Have children count 1-49 aloud and place ocean counters for each number counted. We used pointers for added fun. 

Make it Into an Ocean Math Game with Counting Numbers Practice Activity 

  1. Show a number card on the floor.
  2. Challenge children to use ocean counters to represent the number shown.
  3. Repeat this process until the child shows mastery of counting numbers 1-10 or if the child needs help, reteach using the number line again.
  4. Then continue with higher numbers if the child is ready to move forward.
  • Giant pile of counters were fun to hunt through for specific amounts of animals.
  • Pointer was a fast way to identify numbers.

TIP: For added fun, try this activity outside with a water bin activity described below. 

Outdoor Counting Ocean Animals Bubble Search 

My kids love playing in the water, so we brought our indoor counting activity outdoor, and it turned into a bubble party. We have been using the leftover hose attachment from water balloons to make the most incredible bubbles over the last few months. So my kids made their water bin extra bubbly to make finding the ocean animals more challenging. They have so much fun searching through the bubbles for the items.

They helped each other to reach more significant numbers I was asking them to find. I loved how well they behaved together; it is something we have been working on lately. I’m glad this activity brought out the best in their sharing abilities. I used two separate bins for playing, just in case.

Materials Needed For Ocean Bubble Water Activity 

  • Deep bin with 3+ cups of water. 
  • 3-5 squirts of paint foam (LakeshoreLearning Not Affiliated Link) or a few drops of food coloring. 
  • Ocean counter (Lakeshore Learning/ Not Affiliate Link) 
  • Recycled water balloon hose attachment or straws 

Steps for Playing Counting Ocean Animals Bubble Search 

  1. Set up the bin with water, ocean figures, and food color or foam paint.  
  2. Create a colossal bubble layer on the surface of the water. Kids’ favorite part!
  3. Ask for different amounts of animals as they search through the bubbles to find the items. 
    1. For example, “Please find four orange sea creatures.” 
    2. “Please, find 2 dolphins.” 

Tip: Instead of using one large bin, I used two small containers for this activity, which helped my children work together to find the items I requested.

We started this activity inside and using a large table they made a chart from items I asked them to find.

How to know which line container?

In business
from July 21, 2010:




You can find out which sea line the container belongs to by the letter code, which consists of 4 letters. This code is called a prefix and the container number starts with it. For example, the prefix of the container MSKU 5740999 belonging to the MAERSK shipping line is MSKU.

Container prefixes are registered with the International Bureau for Containers and Intermodal Transport (BIC) in Paris. Registration in a single center ensures the uniqueness of the owner code in the world.

The database of registered owners is constantly changing. Accordingly, new prefixes appear and previously registered owner codes disappear.

When buying and selling, when the owner is changed, the container is re-marked and assigned a letter code with the number of the new container owner. When a container is leased out, the prefix indicating ownership does not change.

See the table with common prefixes (codes) of containers on the page — Prefixes of sea containers.

The bill of lading allows you to pick up the cargo from the seaport and is needed to complete the customs declaration. Therefore, there should be no errors in the document. In order to quickly check and navigate the contents of the bill of lading, the article gave examples of bills of lading and compiled a transcript of the graph.

February 2, 2023

What is a bill of lading? The document obliges the transport company to transfer the goods from the shipper to the recipient. The bill of lading contains information about the movement of cargo, from which port and when it was sent, as well as information that is used for customs clearance — information about the cargo.

sea bill of lading bill of lading

Bill of lading is an international waybill for the carriage of goods by sea, which confirms the right of the recipient to pick up the goods from the port.

Here are the main functions of the bill of lading in maritime transport:

  • confirms the contract for the carriage of goods;
  • contains complete information about the cargo;
  • fixes the loading on board the vessel;
  • allows the recipient to pick up the shipment.

If the consignee is not indicated in the bill of lading, it becomes negotiable. In other words, the right to the cargo can be transferred or sold en route. Then the bill of lading has a new function, it becomes a security.

The bill of lading does not have a single form. Therefore, each shipping line draws up a document in a different way. Typically, the carrier prints the data on its letterhead in triplicate. One for the sender, the second for the carrier, the third for the recipient.

Here are some examples of bills of lading for shipping lines that work with the delivery of containers to Russia:

Fesco bill of lading for cargo from China.

Bill of lading for cargo from Akkon sea line from Turkey.

Bill of lading for cargo from Sinokor sea line from Vietnam.

Information on the bill of lading

It is important to check that the completed bill of lading is correct. And if there are mistakes, then correct them in advance. Otherwise, customs may delay the release of the goods and conduct an inspection. This is especially true for data on cargo, its weight and quantity.

How does “Consignee” translate, what is the “Notify party” column for and what does the “Shippers stow load and count” mark mean? In order to quickly navigate the bill of lading, we compiled a memo with the decoding of the bill of lading column:

B/L No
(BL No)
Bill of Lading number.
Shipper Shipper, company name with address. For example, a factory from China.
Consignee Consignee, company name with address. For example, a Russian importer.
Notify party
(Notify address)
The company that is informed of the arrival of the shipment. It can be a forwarder or a consignee.
Vessel Vessel name.
Place of Receipt Place of receipt for shipment. If the column is filled, then the line took the goods from the factory. If not filled, then the line transports cargo from port to port.
Port of Loading Port of Loading.
Port of Discharge Destination port.
Place of Delivery Place of delivery. This column is filled in if the sea line delivers the cargo from the port of destination to the warehouse of the consignee.
Kind of Packages; Description of goods / Numbers / Quantity Information about the cargo and its packaging / quantity of cargo and packaging.

If there is a note «Shippers stow load and count» — «The sender loaded and counted the goods.» This means that the information was entered from the words of the sender.

Container / Size type / Seal 8 Load weight in kilograms. Usually indicate the gross weight.
Measurement, m3 Cargo volume in cubic meters.
Freight & Charges Freight and allowances.

If the carriage has already been paid — «freight prepaid», if not and the freight is to be collected — «freight collect». Sometimes they do not specify and refer to the agreement of the parties — “as arranged”.

Date of Issue of B/L
Shipped on Board Date Date of loading on board the vessel.

Under the description of the goods or in the column on freight and surcharges, the terms of demurrage and detention charges may be prescribed. Read more about these additional allowances in the article.

What does FCL, CY-CY, LIFO and other abbreviations mean in the bill of lading?

Reduction Transcript Translation 188

House bill of lading
HBL House bill of lading MBL Master bill of lading Marine/Liner bill of lading
LIFO Liner in free out The price includes loading onto the ship, but not unloading at the port of destination.
LILO Liner in liner out Loading and unloading included.
FIFO Free In Free Out Cost without loading and unloading.
FCL Full container load The sender used a full container.
LCL Less Container Load The sender used a separate part of the container along with others. We are talking about sending goods as a groupage cargo.
Container yard to container yard Transportation from container terminal of departure to container terminal of destination.
COC Carrier owned container Carrier owned container.
SOC Shipper owned container Shipper owned container.

In the description of the cargo there are abbreviations: ctns, pcs, qty and others. Such abbreviations are used on the invoice and packing list. — You can read the transcript here.

Types of bill of lading

The bill of lading that the importer receives from the supplier for the goods fully paid for is usually a registered house bill of lading. If the goods are delivered with reloading to another ship, then two bills of lading are given — ocean and feeder. For example, when goods from Asia are delivered to the port of St. Petersburg with reloading at a European port. There are many types of bill of lading, below is the main classification.

Depending on the consignee:

  • A personalized bill of lading or «Straight B/L» is issued in the name of a specific recipient without the right to transfer the goods to someone else. Then in the column «Consignee» indicate the details of the consignee, and on the margins of the bill of lading there is a mark «non-negotiable».
  • Order bill of lading or «Order B/L» entitles a third party to receive the goods. This is fixed with the words “by order” — “to order” in the “Consignee” column.
  • Bearer Bill of Lading or «Bearer B/L» does not contain a specific recipient. The cargo is issued to anyone who presents the original bill of lading.

Depending on the user of the document:

  • House Bill of Lading or “House B/L” is issued for shippers. For example, for a factory. For the factory to then send a copy or original of the bill of lading to its buyer.
  • Marine bill of lading or «Master B/L» is issued to a freight forwarder, agent or other intermediary. Sometimes such a bill of lading is called linear.

Delivery method:

  • Voyage / liner bill of lading for scheduled flights.
  • Freight/Charter/Trump bill of lading for occasional and occasional vessel departures.
