When the scarlet cardinal tells
Her dreams to the dragon fly,
And the lazy breeze makes a nest in the trees,
And murmurs a lullaby,
It is July.

EXPLORING TIDE POOLS. Visit the beach.
The best time to see a tide pool is when the tide has gone out. If you
sit quietly and watch carefully you will see movement in the water.
Look for small fish, hermit crabs, snails, clams, anemones, baby starfish,
etc. Scoop them up into a net and place them into a pail of ocean water
so you can see them better. Record all the animals you see and draw
pictures of them. Then return them to the water where they were found.
Write a story about one of the creatures you saw. If you cannot get
to the seaside, visit an aquarium.
STARFISH. If you are lucky to find a
starfish, you will see its 5 arms, called rays, form a star pattern.
On each ray you will see tiny suckers called tube feet that help the
starfish walk on the ocean bottom. Starfish are lucky. If they lose
a ray or part of it, it grows back. Starfish like to eat clams, scallops,
