Jurassic Coast

Topic: 3D Rocks and soils

A landslip described as "the worst for 100 years" has destroyed more than 400 metres of Dorset's World Heritage Jurassic Coast. The earth movement blocked a stretch of beach between Lyme Regis and Charmouth but there are no reports of injuries.
Children will use the information provided to determine what type of rock makes up the Jurassic Coast and they will learn about other types of rock.
