Who loves a trip to the beach?
*ducks as everyone raises their hand*
While we’re waiting for our family trip to the shore this year, I thought we’d try a fun printable beach unit study with the kids.
Which is how this All About Beaches early elementary unit was born!
There’s so much more to the beach than sand and surf!
There are animals that live on the beach, scientific principles that explain how sand is formed, ways to learn about notable beaches around the world, and more that kids can discover in this printable unit study.
This unit is full of beach-themed activities that you can use with young learners and early elementary students.
Read on to see how to get your copy!

Sounds very informative and fun! This year we’re not going to the beach but this seems like a cool thing for those who do!
These are perfect for our final days of home school before summer. Thank you 🙂
This is a wonderful idea for children to have and work on. I can see using this in the car on the way to the beach.

Looks like a great pack. We are fans of word searches for a bit of relaxation and I am sure we would love How Sand is Made.
This looks like a fun pack of games and learning activities! Kids (even Midwestern landlocked kids) love learning about the beach, shells, ocean life. 🙂 I once brought shells back from a trip to hand out in my 3rd grade St. Louis classroom, and had NO IDEA that some of my 8 year old students had never held a shell before!
Just in time for summer. Love you pritnables.
