Where the Land and Sea Meet is full of activities to help children develop observational skills that scientists use to explore the world’s seashores. All you need are crayons, markers, or colored pencils. This book also introduces children to 92 sea life species seen by NaGISA (Natural Geography In Shore Areas project) scientists at seashores around the world. Each plant and animal is labeled with scientific name, common name, and where it was seen. Spiral binding makes it easy for children to do the activities, and for teachers and parents to make copies.
