The summer months are a great time for fun family learning adventures! We love to use our summer break for all the STEM projects we don’t have time for during the school year. We’ll be planning several excursions to our local beach for science experiments about erosion, sun protection, and more.

As a former classroom teacher, I have been putting together unit studies for years! I love finding hands-on activities that families can do with minimal preparation and NO worksheets. Children learn best through discovery and play, and these beach activities will help you all have fun learning together!
