We are going to the seashore!

Recommended Posts

Try to get some books from the library before you go that are related to the ocean/beach..just look through what's listed on amazon..I think a thread a while back on this board talked about an ocean unit. Pack a magnifying lense, some nets to catch things, plenty of baggies to hold things..I can't help much for the older kids. My Nature Journal by Olmstead does have a whole section on the seashore but then you'd want to use the rest of it and I'm not sure if you're into nature study. Have a great time!!!!
