Moving mountains to the sea-Experiment
Target Group: Primary School
Subject: Geology & Water Movement
Ocean Literacy Principle: 1,2,4
Students understand how beaches are formed by watching an experiment.
Students prepare a jar with sand, soil, gravel and pebbles. They predict what will happen with the materials during a big rainstorm, shake the jar and see what happens. They read a story together about a sand particle that travels from the mountain to the sea. The activity can be found in the Educator's Guide on page 29.
Per group: jar, pebbles, gravel, soil, sand, water. Computer and projector (to read the story).
