Classroom Ideas

Before viewing the clip, ask the class: "If we were on a beach right now, what would you see, hear, taste and smell? What could you feel with your fingers?" Give the children time to exchange suggestions, then play the clip. After viewing the clip, pupils will enjoy handling a selection of rocks and pebbles in a sand tray. Can the children sort out a mixed heap of stones and sand by putting it into strands, from the biggest items, to the smallest ones? The children could add seashells to their sand tray, to make their own model of a beach.
