16 PAGES TO GET YOU STARTED
Every year my class visits a local beach to study the tide pools. We gather animals and place them in a classroom touch tank. The students research each animal (sea stars, mollusks, crabs, snails, horseshoe crabs, fish). They measure and weigh the animals as well. These worksheets are organizers for collecting facts and also allow space to draw and label the animal. A few of the worksheets are independent activities for groups of students to complete as they are observing the touch tank. As I teach tide pools again in the fall, I will be adding more worksheets.
