2 in 1 Tide Pools Experiment and Sensory Play

Tide Pool Sensory Play

Our class has been spending these last couple of weeks of school investigating and exploring tide pools. For one of our activities, we made a mini-tide pool of our own to re-enact how the rise and fall of tides affect the creatures that call these pools home. We took a plastic bin and set the stage by pouring sand in the bottom, followed by seashells, stones, and other objects to represent the various lifeforms found in tide pools...

We slowly poured the water in as we discussed as a class how tides rise and fall at different times of the day and what possible causes and problems this may have for creatures who make their home there.

After our experiment and discussion, we the materials then doubled as a special water sensory exploratory center that the students rotated through.
