Nothing beats a summer day at the beach! With all that it offers, the beach, should be used in a fun and comprehensive learning unit. A beach unit can be used to introduce and reinforce several important concepts in Early Childhood Education; including language, cognitive, social, and motor skills. This unit includes a letter for parents, a directory of beach terms, 15 detailed classroom activities (including pintables and photographs), 4 ideas for additional activities, and a list of books and videos that support the unit. Also, included is a list of goals after each activity, which align with the drafted Common Core Standards for preschool. This unit is appropriate for preschool and day care classes.
