"Exploring Seaside Towns" looks at what makes a seaside town, the people and communities living there and how they earn their living, seaside schools, shopping and entertainment, transport, seaside homes, and threats to seaside towns such as pollution and erosion. Meet some of the people who live in the UK's seaside towns through intriguing Case studies and find out what jobs they do and what attracted them to live in a seaside town. The book includes relevant activities, such as map work, carrying out a traffic survey, and designing a postcard. There are also ideas at the back of the book suggesting how you can find out more about seaside towns. This title was previously published by Hodder Wayland as "Landmarks: Exploring Seaside Towns". This edition has been simplified and updated.
