Let’s watch the tide come in together with these educational toys! Our ocean wooden puzzle set features accurately drawn life that exists in each tide pool layer. Watch as your child discovers new details about each layer and uncovers the mysteries behind our tide pools. From the sea-sponge to the oyster, there’s so much to learn about our great ocean.
Children’s Wooden Tide Pool Layered Puzzle Toy · Educational and creative toy based on Montessori and Waldorf principles · Ages 6-9 · Features 5 tide zone layers — spray zone, high tide zone, mid tide low, low tide zone, and sub tidal zone · Measures 5 x 7 x 1.5 inches · Made of poplar wood · Eco-friendly and sustainably-sourced wood · Food grade linseed oil finish · Tested and CPSC approved and compliant
ACTIVITY SUGGESTIONS Younger kids — Have fun identifying and naming the animal in each layer. Older kids — Explore the tide pool in more detail by picking a layer and an animal from that layer. How is that animal adapted to survive in that layer? For example: Limpet has an extremely strong grip to hold on to rocks or other surfaces. Why? Because it lives in the spray zone and has to withstand the harsh waves and currents from the ocean. Isn’t that fascinating?
