This activity allows students to apply their geographical understanding of coastal processes, over the course of two to three lessons (maximum of two lessons to make and one lesson to play). Students are asked to design a board game to teach other students how waves shape the coastline, including all crucial geographical processes and vocabulary.

This activity works best in groups of four, where each member of the group has a different task, see below.

Group activities like this allow students to build class relationships and improve their communication skills. In groups students must decide how they will layout their board game as well as how it will be played.

Success criteria is shared with the class in order to demonstrate progress throughout the activity.
