Going to the beach is a great way to spend a summer day. But what if the beach was gone the next time you visited? Some beaches are slowly being washed away!
Write a personal narrative about the effects of beach erosion and ways to protect beaches. To do so, you will research beach erosion and beach protection. Here are some questions to guide your research:
Why are beaches important?
What are some causes of beach erosion?
How can beach erosion be prevented?
What are some ways beaches can be restored?
Are you ready? Begin by visiting the Web sites listed in Step 2. Look for answers to the questions above. Write down what you learn in the note-taking boxes.
With teacher supervision, you may use search engines to find other Web sites. You also can research beach erosion at the library. When you are ready, follow Steps 3 and 4 to write your story.
