How about a beach party in January? Without truck loads of sand and swimsuits, how can 6th graders break winter's grip with some beach action?
How about some beach towels, some sun-shades, a bit of Surfin' USA or Surfer Girl music, a sail-board, and some snacks. Turn up the thermistat. Throw a few beach balls. Even turn on that old disco ball, and suddenly, Life's a Beach.
