Picture a sunny beach, lapping waves, bare feet, and your children walking along a shore—either as children or years from now as adults, scanning the sand for a treasure.
Kids are full of fun and questions when you start a learning adventure about seashells! What are the best shelling places in the world? How is a seashell formed? What kinds of animals make seashells their home? How are pearls created? Are there different types of seashells in different parts of the world? How do we hear the ocean when we put a seashell to our ears? And so much more:
When they spy a seashell, will they know all it offered a tiny creature in the waters below? Or know which type of seashell lies in their hand and understand its place in God’s amazing plan?
Here’s what parents are saying about Sunny Seashells:
“We have just started homeschooling our eldest son (10 year old). . . . with our first unit study – Download N Go Sunny Seashells. I did this with my two eldest boys (7 and 10 years). It was great! We had so much fun. We live near the coast in England and spent many days on the sea shore exploring shells with such a better understanding. We also used the unit as a base for branching out into fossil hunting too! I absolutely loved this unit and am so excited about moving on with my son!”

“I have always loved looking at seashells as a kid. There are so many different shapes, sizes, and colors. Now tell me, who doesn’t think of putting one up to their ear when they hold one? I know I always do! In Sunny Seashells, you can expect your children to learn about what seashells are, some seashell history, different types of seashells, and the science of seashells. This unit can help children who (like my son) haven’t been to a beach before to imagine what it must be like to be out there. . . . I like not having to search all over the Web for information, because I get tired trying to find just the right info when we are studying something. The links Amanda provides in her units are real time-savers for us. This helps keep mom from being overwhelmed looking for answers to the questions and my son from getting restless waiting for me to hurry up already :0) To me, the best thing about unit studies is that you are incorporating learning in more than one subject area.”

“There are scientists for everything, but a person who studies seashells is not called Under-the-Seaologist nor a Seashellologist. He is called a conchologist. Lots of fun things to learn in the science section of this study. . . . The Scripture lessons and poems make for great copywork too. As always, there are components for a lapbook included. Lots of seashell and sea creature video clips all hyper-linked into the lessons. There are other great Internet resources for crafts as well. There are math lessons using shells included. Shhhhhhh—don’t let the kids know they are learning something to do with ‘school.’”
