    Read this description of a beach. This is probably what we all think of when a beach is described to us. BUT – what if we change the whole MINDSET about what a beach is.

    The learning intention for this activity is that I want you to think more broadly about common topics. Don’t be satisfied with the ‘normal’ approach. Think ‘outside the square’.

    After reading this description you will need to check out a Keynote in the Grade 6R server.

    View the Keynote.

    Write a description of a beach that is OPPOSITE to our Hawaiin beach.

    (Write this in your Writing Book.)
