If you are planning a trip to the beach this summer you will want to check out all these printables and ideas that you can do to make your own beach nature study. With homeschool, the learning never stops, even when we take trips to the beach and go on vacation! I love to embrace every opportunity to learn while we are out exploring. These are the things that my children remember the most, especially when we can do some nature journaling and hands-on projects while we are out.
