This Beach Exploration lesson plan also includes:
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!
- The process of sifting sand is a great way to teach sensory or tactile learners
- Critical thinking comes into play as learners determine if the items they find come from people, plants, or animals
