A Night at Hideaway Cove Bundle
Grade Levels: Kindergarten; 1; 2; 3;

Bring the ocean and night sky into your classroom with Strong Nation’s A Night at Hideaway Cove Bundle.  We have paired finger puppets, a plush, a board trimmer, and a marine matching game to complement the book’s ocean theme and animal characters. 

A Night at Hideaway Cove not only introduces readers to creatures that call Hideaway Cove their home and their nighttime activities but also explores how the moon affects the tides and intertidal zones.  To provide an Indigenous perspective on the moon and astronomy, we have included four moon posters from Tsimshian artist Bill Helin that represent the seasons, as well as a Coast Salish story on the sun and the moon from Coast Salish author Celestine Aleck and Coast Salish illustrator Cole Good.  The inclusion of these authentic resources offers a wonderful opportunity to incorporate Indigenous knowledge and culture into any seashore ecosystem unit or science lesson!
