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.
