Life at the Beach Examining the Crime Scene

The fourth and fifth lessons are actual field trip experiences and data collection, and can be done on the same field trip. In this lesson, students learn important safety rules about the beach, and about interacting with organisms on the beach. Then they take a field trip to the beach, and make a series of observations about the water, wind, weather, and animal and human activity, and consider what conditions are necessary for survival. During a transect, students identify life at the beach in different zones of habitation.
