On the 23rd of June, the level 3 Geography class went to Whiritoa for the day. The aim of this trip was to collect data from the beach, we took the wind speed and wind direction, sand samples to analyse and we made a beach profile by measuring the angle of the slopes. This research will be used for Geography 3.5 internal assessment, and conduct geographic research with consultation.
It was a beautiful sunny day in Whiritoa, although it was windy we still got the drone up for the photos and videos of the beach and its surroundings.
We also stopped in Waihi for food and to stretch our legs where students took a turn down the rocket slide. All in all a successful day with some good Geography being done.
