10 species of commercial interest in the harbor of Arenys

Last week we went to the harbor of Arenys. We saw different fishing boats. And  we saw lots of types of fish as well. Then we went to a fish auction. 
It was very interesting and we learnt lots of things.
See you soon,

Comments from Sharky! (The Sand)


I see you've been having fun with the sand. Thank you for sharing it on the blog!
Now, let's see what have you found out...

Happy to see that you have got more accurate in giving your GPS coordinates, but SI Badalona remember to include if they are North, South, East or West. You have made me swim a lot to find you!!!

I see that most of the beaches have undergone some kind of strong transformation due to natural or artificial causes. They definitely alter the shape of the beach!

However, answering the last question, when sand is added artificially to a beach, there is a bigger mixture of grain sizes than what you find in nature. This is because they have not been selected by the effect of wind, waves and currents. This bigger mixture helps the sand to pile up more easily.

Now, going back to your data try to finish the sentence:
Beaches with finer sand tend to have a ________________ (steeper/flatter) beach face.

All participating schools are invited to answer on this same post, just press on the 'No comments/comments' link!

Looking forward to your comments, you are doing a great job!

The Sand - Pont de Petroli Beach

For this activity we have used the sand we collected on the beach and we have experimented with it: measuring, analyzing colour, learning about composition and beach formation. Here you have some pictures of our experiments: we have made a collage!  

This is the map of the beach: it's quite even, but very near the port you can see it's a bit more uneven.
