Life in a Tide Pool
By Cindy Grigg
  

1     Have you ever been to the beach? Beaches are not the same. You may have gone to the beach to swim. It was probably a wide, sandy beach. Some beaches are rocky and narrow. They may have big rocks called boulders. They may have small rocks. Many animals live on rocky beaches.
 
2     Some creatures live in tide pools. These are small pools of water left behind after high tide. Some are the size of puddles. Some are the size of a bathtub. Water gets caught among the rocks. Small animals get caught in these pools. Tide pool creatures lead a special life. Their home is always changing. They must be able to live in the ocean and in a small pool.
 
3     In a tide pool, you might see a starfish. Starfish aren't really fish. They are a different kind of animal. A better name is for them is sea star. Sea stars are covered with spines on the outside. They have five arms. They have no heads or tails. A sea star's mouth is on the bottom of its body in the middle of the five arms. If an arm gets cut off or eaten, the sea star can grow a new one!
