If you look closely in the above picture you can see a lot of surfers waiting to catch waves. It didn’t look like a great place to catch waves to me, but right after I took the photo, many of them caught a wave. (Of course, I missed that picture!)
So what do surfers know about waves that makes them able to predict where and when a good wave will show up? What makes waves? Where are the best waves in the world for surfing?
And if this project turns into a project about where the best beaches are in the world for catching fish, or the best beaches in the world for getting a great tan – that is authentic learning!
