Listen to an audio clip

From the left edge of the thermoform follow the line straight to the right. Along this line, if you are careful, you can find two cracks dug in to the cliff rising upwards. The strong waves crash against the cliff, forcing and squashing air deep into the cracks. As the air is released it expands. This makes the crack wider. After a long, long time the crack becomes a cave. Trace along the cliff's sea line to the right. Can you find a rounded dip or hollow in the rock? This is the cave.

Inspires learning The information on the audio is relevant and concise and the images are very clear. We are using the pack as part of wider home school projects. The packs have become an integral part of projects. The opportunity to feel images really inspires learning. Library Member
