1 Make sure your template is this way.
2 Using a green crayon, shade what will become the tops of your cliffs.
3 In the first section of your diagram, draw a couple of rows of boulders. These are sometimes called rock armour!
4 In the second section, draw a black/grey rectangle, this represents a sea wall.
5 These are cages filled with rocks. In the third section of your diagram, draw a line of gabions.
6 Our cliffs are clay, they are less resistant, prone to erosion and hence slumping. Shade your cliffs brown.
7 Neatly score the triangle shape in the fourth section of your diagram.
8 Fold down the scored triangle shape and draw on the following. This is a groyne, it stops the process of Long Shore Drift, allowing a beach to form in front of the cliff.
9 Shade in a beach and the sea. Make sure the beach is much larger before the groyne.
10 Using a ruler, fold along the black lines that run the length of the template. Do this on both sides of the template.
11 Your template should now stand!
12 Put the following numbers on your template. 1 2 3 4 5 6 Draw a red line to represent the direction of Long Shore Drift.
13 Slightly bend your groyne at both ends so that it stands freely. Glue the end nearest to the sea.
14 Open a double page of your book. Using two tiny bits of sellotape, practice positioning your model. The green cliff tops should be central over the spine of the book.
15 Practice closing your book. Make sure the model folds neatly. When you have found the right position for the model. Glue it down. Use the glue sparingly!
16 Close your book.
17 Congratulations! Additional Baywatch babes can then be added!
20 Finally, Add the title ‘Coastal protection’ to your model pages. Using the worksheet- Match the images and descriptions on the worksheet, to the numbers on your model.
