It offers background content and images for educators to use in teaching marine science. To begin your tour, select a topic from the menu above. Most of the information contained in these sections is general and can be applied to any local barrier island. However, the sections on history and erosion are more specific to Folly Beach.
.....Throghout the site you will find information presented in a variety of ways. Many of the topics contain introductory images. These are designed to be used in
guided inquiry activities in the classroom. These images will help generate discussion, problem solving and divergent thinking. The site also contains some animation of coastal processes, and activities to do when at the beach.
