On Monday 6th of March Room 4 went to New Brighton beach to see how important the sand dunes are. We learned that the sand dunes can only be lowered to 8 meters. Some people don't like the sand dunes because they don't get a view of the beautiful beach but they actually keep all the water and sand from coming in our homes. If we walk on the sand dunes they will get destroyed that is why the have the steps to get across.
Here is an example of a sand dune that some students of Room 4 made.
The trip was amazing. It was also cool building and learning about sand dunes.
Thanks for reading the Batten Team blog.
