Reflection: Lesson Planning Coastal Erosion - Section 2: Engage


The lesson prior to this one, focused completely on sand and what makes it and where it comes from.  Having that knowledge will help the children to understand more about this lesson.  Much earlier in the unit, I focused a lesson completely on the waves and their movements at sea.  Having that background knowledge will also help to build the conceptual learning that I want to occur with this lesson.
