PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This lesson is compatible with the Second Grade Next Generation Science Standard* 2-ESS2-1, which states that students should “[c]ompare multiple solutions designed to slow or prevent wind or water from changing the shape of the land.”

This Shoreline Protection lesson helps students understand the fragility of the shore and allows them to appreciate the importance of protecting it. This lesson can be used to teach about shoreline protection along both ocean and lake shores. If you live near a river, it can also work, you would just have to change the protection structure to a levee system instead of sand dunes. The lesson concludes with a critical thinking question in which the students use their knowledge of shoreline protection to decide what actions should be taken to protect a hypothetical home they are going to move into.
