Beach Exploration

Little ones will absolutely love this lesson. It's all about the beach and what they can find while sifting through the sand. A large bucket of sand filled with hidden items is brought into the classroom. Learners will discuss what kinds of things can be found at the beach and where those things might have come from. Then, they'll explore the sand and sort items based on how they may have gotten there. Super cute and super fun!

As a student teacher Lesson Planet has helped me kick start lesson planning and has given me some ideas for sequence within the lesson.
