Beach Postcards

Beach Postcards provides an account of a girl named Jo who visits beaches around the world with her family and sends postcards back to her friend Linn. Linn writes a report about what she learned about beaches and shorelines from Jo's postcards. This book serves as an invitation to the unit and introduces students to some basic concepts about beaches and shorelines. It is also designed to help students who may have limited knowledge of shorelines to imagine the experience of being at various beaches.
