What features do we find at the coast?

(1)
Uses an OS map of Dorset for students to locate coastal features. After watching the short video, students identify coastal features (to ensure that they know which is which there is a matching activity). Students then glue in the OS map of Lulworth Cove area and match photographs to the map. They can choose one feature and explain how it was formed as an extension. Our school is on the coast so you may need to adapt some activities to wherever you are in the country. Please leave a review.
