BEACH Module 10: Testing Materials for Floatation
8 LESSONS: LEVEL 3/4
Staying afloat in the water can take a lot of energy for people especially for a lengthy time period. Anyone ending up in the water unintentionally can also create panic and confusion. This module aims to help students learn about non traditional floatation devices, including regular household items and how to use them as floatation aides if necessary.
