I live and teach in eastern Massachusetts, about 40 minutes from the beach. To give students first-hand experiences with the concepts of landforms and erosion, a possible field trip would be to Westport, MA, where we could visit Horseneck Beach and Gooseberry Beach. We could examine and compare the two beaches since they are close to one another, yet Horseneck is flat and sandy, while Gooseberry is rocky. Another trip could be to Oak Knoll Wildlife Sanctuary in Attleboro, MA. Here, guides tailor the visit to the current science curriculum topics while taking students on walking tours through woods and by streams. The Cape Cod Museum of Natural History in Brewster, MA, would be a rather long trip, but offers outdoor field walks and indoor exhibits focusing on coastal change.
