1. Print and cut out the coastal animal cards, creating a stack for each sorting activity (Plant/Animal; Land/Water/Air; Fur/Feathers/Hard Shell)
2. Ask your kids if they have ever visited the marsh or a beach and what animals they saw or that they think might live there.
3. Use the three sets of coastal animal cards as a center activity, asking the kids to sort the cards according to the category:
Is it a Plant or an Animal?
Does it live in the Land, Water or Air?
Does it have Fur, Feathers, or a Hard Shell?
4. Create a story! Draw or write a story of a Sand Tiger Shark and a Ghost Crab, including details like fins, gills, eyes, teeth, claws, shell, legs, sand and ocean.
Help kids write the name of their crab and shark.
