What Lives on a Sandy Beach? provides a virtual walk along a sandy beach—with a peek at the multitude of organisms that live there—most hidden from view. This book is designed to stimulate curiosity and provide a rare look at these sandy beach organisms in their habitat.
Students are challenged to answer questions posed in the text about the organisms—all of which can be answered through inference based on evidence in the illustrations. Students use information they find in this book to write reports about sandy beach organisms.
