This fieldtrip is ideal for approximately 20 students and can encompass a number of beaches, coves and sand dunes. The sand dunes and limestone cliffs form the basis for a lesson on Bermuda’s geology. The animals and plants living in this harsh environment have many interesting adaptations which students can experience through sight and touch.
Suggested topics for discussion include:
- Anatomy of a Sand Dune
- Components of Sand
- Beach Zones
- Plant and Animal Adaptations
The lesson can be supplemented with drawing exercises and a scavenger hunt.
