Where's The Beach?: Examining Coastal Erosion
Author(s): COLLEGE OF WILLIAM & MARY
Where's the Beach? introduces environmental science to students in grades 1-3. Plans for building a children's camp at the beach are on hold because the town council is worried about beach erosion. Since the camp received a large donation to develop nature-themed experiences, designed to teach children how to protect the environment, the camp manager wants to cooperate with the council. The problem is that she must begin construction quickly to be ready for the summer season. Acting as members of the town council, the students must develop scientifically-based regulations that will satisfy the long-term needs of the town and the plans for the new camp.
