Coasts - Erosion and Geology

Full lesson covering the different types of erosion and geology along the coast. Students will learn about the different types of erosion at the coast and will be able to explain how they create coastal landforms. Students will learn about different types of rock and will consider how resistance can affect rates of erosion.

Aimed at KS3 but has links to the AQA GCSE specification. Can be differentiated for low and high ability students with opportunities to stretch and challenge students. Suggestions can be found in the notes section at the bottom of each slide.
