tide poolin'


Exploration and nature is a really big part of our lives so when the tide is low, we make sure we head to the beach. Lately we have been spending time teaching Lucy all about tide pools  and it has been so much fun!
Since tide pools are living, our exploration is not about collecting things to bring home but more about making observations. We take photos of things that catch our eye and we hunt and look for creatures to identify. Then we head home and spend time researching, identifying, drawing and recording our findings. This process began as a science activity for Lucy but it is quickly growing into something that the entire family is passionate about! Here is a little peek into our process.

I've always wanted to see tide pools in real life! Such delicate and fragile ecosystems. Inspired by the way you recorded the exploration in your journals.

Absolutely ADORABLE!! You are making me miss those sweet years with my daughter. Do you have plans to homeschool in the future?

Having a background in early childhood education, I must say that you do all kind of right things for behalf of Lucy's education and development, it's a pleasure to see how engaged and concentrated Lucy is in her activities, your daughter is a lucky girl! Have you heard about the Reggio Emilia approach? I guess you would be a fantastic atelierista at Reggio Emilia schools :).
