Seashore Explorers

There are three separate lessons within this resource that can be used together, or that can each stand alone. In the first, five simple activities allow junior scientists to examine the amazing properties of water. In the second, they compare the strength of potato chips with ridges and without to demonstrate why seashells might have ridges. The third instructional activity gets learners thinking about what objects might be unsafe to pick up when beach combing. Geared toward younger scientists, these lessons could be used in an ocean unit or prior to a field trip to the shore.

I am in my last year of graduate school, and having to do observation, and student teaching has been great. Lesson Planet was one of the sites mentioned one day, since then I've gain so many new creative ideas through the lessons. Thank you Lesson Planet
