I wrote this book many years ago and have modified it bit by bit over the years. It is written in narrative form with each intertidal zone creature telling about itself while giving interesting facts about itself. Each chapter ends with a fun activity... from mazes to math to puzzles to crosswords. You will meet a crab, squid, sea star, mussel, sea anemone, limpet, snail, chiton, beach hopper, kelp, sea urchin, jellyfish, barnacle, clam, and sponge. Each animal has its own chapter. When I teach from this book, I do one chapter per day. There are 13 chapters. I usually print a copy of this book for each student. They read it and then write, color, or cut the activity page right in the book. At the end they can take it all home. This is a consumable book. By purchasing this, you have permission to make as many copies as you need so each of your students can have their own book.
This book is ideal for 2nd or 3rd grade.
