NEW - Changing Coastlines

Try our latest Earthlearningidea- 'Changing coastlines; investigating how coastal erosion, transportation and deposition can change the shape of coastlines'.
Coastlines, with their cliffs, beaches, headlands and bays, are constantly changing shape. It is important to understand the processes because if you prevent erosion in one place this may lead to reduced deposition in another. There is usually a knock-on effect somewhere else when people try to control the shape of a coastline.
This is a very popular activity in the UK. Please let us know how your pupils get on in other countries.
