Transportation - Longshore Drift

Transportation - Longshore Drift

The sea sources it materials from various places: cliff erosion, constructive waves, carried down rivers to the mouth and transported by longshore drift. Some beaches have beautiful golden sands whereas others have less attractive shingle, but there is a reason why beaches look as they do. The reason is longshore drift. These worksheets help students to understand the process of longshore drift and the ways sediment is transported by waves and tides.

The Hydrological Cycle

The Hydrological Cycle

The water cycle is the never ending movement of water between the ocean, atmosphere and land. Some of the water may be stored in the ocean, on the land or in the atmosphere. This water will be transferred (moved) around the cycle. These worksheets allow students to understand the basic parts of the water cycle using a poem to help order these correctly. They then show their learning through writing a piece which personifies a water droplet trough the cycle.

Spits

Spits

Spits are extended stretches of beach material, such as sand and shingle which project out to sea, joined to the mainland at one end. A spit is formed due to the coastline changing direction – Longshore drift is the main source of material build up as it brings materials up from further down the coastline. These worksheets look at how spits are formed and the processess, inputs and outputs of spits.
