My friend, Keri and her 4 children, plus myself and 4 of my children stayed at my parents condo for 5 days together. We both homeschool so it made it nice to trade off who taught sometimes. We really hoped to "dive in" to studying the tide, life along the shore, and tidepool creatures.
We spent alot of time beach combing and collecting. Our last night, we cleaned all the specimens and collected and use the book Tideland Treasures which written just about Hilton Head island. We had a blast. The kids drew what we laid out and examined each thing thoroughly. The labeled there drawings in their Nature Notebooks to keep.
