Island of the Blue Dolphin

One of our favorite middle school books to read together as a family is Island of the Blue Dolphin.  This 1961 Newberry Medal winner tells the story of Karana, a young girl, and her efforts to survive alone on a repost island.  After reading this adventure story our book club enjoyed a number of hands-on activities to help bring the story to life.  Explore the Island of the Blue Dolphin as a family with these fun activities.

Tides Experiment

Spend a day at the beach and you will notice how the water level changes (sometimes pretty dramatically) on the beach.  This is due to tides.  Students can conduct a simple experiment at home to learn how tides occur.

Beach in a Jar

This is one of our favorite activities for bringing beach memories home!  Using a few basic (maybe even recycled) items found around the house kids can make their own miniature beach scene in a jar with sand and some colorful shells.

As a veteran educator I am always looking for new ways to bring learning to life for my family. I enjoy traveling, sharing ideas with other moms, and helping my children explore the world around them. We have been homeschooling for more than a decade and are now entering the final stretch of our homeschool journey with two teens in high school.
