This study includes everything you need to begin diving into the wonderful world of coastal rock pools, a detailed parent guide gives suggestions for discussion topics, journaling, nature study, crafts, experiments and art projects. The download also comes with a narrative story with diagrams and illustrations so you can delve straight into a literature based education with no additional books. There are options in the parent guide for a simple 'Open and Go' activities with no additional resources or prep as well as a 'Deep Dive' parent guide full of extra fun, hands-on activities and recomended reading.

The activities and contents of this pack are suitable for children aged from 5 to 12 but the deep dive page provides added suggestions to extend the learning to children beyond this age.

This pack is a single chapter from my complete curriculum 'Living Shore'. The chapters can be completed in any order and you can spend as long as you wish in each topic. Whilst this chapter does fit in with the rest of the curriculum to create a complete living book and accompanying parent guide. It can also be used as a stand alone unit independently of the other chapters.

(PLEASE NOTE: not all chapters for this full curriculum may presently be available and will be added to the shop as they are completed. Once all are available you always have the ability to upgrade to the full collection - simply message me)

If you have any further issues with downloading or printing my files do not hesitate to contact me.

To create a tactile finished item I highly recommend printing onto high-quality paper, I like to use watercolour paper as this also allows the children to add their own paintings to the pages they create and means that every piece looks and feels like an original painting.

Good study unit, best for multi age family as has stuff suited from about 3+. We will only use some of the resources as I will use with 8+ during their home-educator visits to grandma, but that still gives plenty of options. We have a locally blushed book about bleneys their habitat and predators that will work well with this unit. Art work is beautiful, and I will use it to encourage some watercolour art (in a comic writer). Sheets about octopi are particularly outstanding. Overall great stuff to go with our amazing local rock pools.
