Welcome students to today's geography lesson - Coasting Along. In this lesson, we will dive into the topic of coasts, its formation, and the factors that affect it.

Warm-up Exercise

To start off, let's get our brains working. I will show you a series of pictures, and I want you to shout out the first word that comes to your mind. Don't worry; you won't be graded on these. Let's begin!

Great job, everyone! Now let's move on to the main topic of today's lesson.

Coastal Formation

Have you ever wondered how coasts are formed? Well, let's take a deep dive into it. The coast is a place where the land meets the sea. It is subjected to various natural processes such as erosion, sedimentation, and weathering. It is also affected by human activities such as construction, land reclamation, and dredging.

Types of Coasts

Now that we know how coasts are formed, let's move on to the types of coasts. There are mainly four types of coasts:

We will discuss each type in detail in the next section.

Factors that Affect Coasts

Before we end, let's discuss the factors that affect coasts, such as tides, waves, currents, and sea level. These factors can have a significant impact on the shape and size of the coast.


That's it for today's lesson, Coasting Along. We have learned about coastal formation, types of coasts, and factors that affect them. I hope you enjoyed it, and don't forget to take notes and review what we have discussed to ace your geography test!
