This unit includes everything you need to make a language arts and science lapbook about seashells - except for the shells themselves! Florida State Standards, objectives, vocabulary, shell pictures in full color with short descriptions, skeleton comparison, life cycle wheel, poetry, mini research booklet, and lots of games and activities. Download the preview for some sample pages including a table of contents.
All the shells featured in this unit were found by me on the beaches of Northwest Florida, specifically Panama City, Florida. They are mostly common shells which makes them easy to purchase if you don't have access to the beach. I included a link to a site that sells sets of shells for a very reasonable amount.
Most of the lessons and activities have been kid-tested. My 2nd grade students had a blast completing this lap book and were very proud to take the finished product home. Included are pictures of their work.
