BEACH Module 3: Waves
5-6 LESSONS: LEVEL 3/4
We all know that waves come in many shapes and sizes, can be amazing to watch and can create loads of fun for us all. But what causes a wave to evolve and change? In this module students look at how swells are caused and the different conditions that cause them, as well as the different types of waves and why some are more dangerous than others.
