Why is there sand at the beach?

We have been reading great facts from Ben’s new book that he brought in to share with the class

One of the questions was “Why is there sand at the beach?”

A few of us had a go at guessing before we found out the real answer!

It’s to make sandcastles. Mason

God put it there.  Ela

If you didn’t have any sand you couldn’t get out of the water . Grace M

For digging holes. Gracie

From a Demi God from Moana. Zoe

Pretty good thinking! We now know it’s from tiny grains of rocks and shells that have been broken down by the waves and weather!
