Some details of the package:

This new package aims to encourage students to enjoy the beach and surf safely.  It shows interesting sea creatures and also alerts students to some of the dangers and how to avoid them.  The student reading texts give clear advice and information on:
  • swimming between the flags and attracting help in the surf
  • some of the poisonous sea creatures and basic first aid for their bites and stings
  • interesting sea mammals, turtles, coral reefs and birds at the seaside and far over the oceans
The small volume of reading materials is arranged at three levels, ranging from extremely easy to easy (approx. ISLPR 1 through to 2+; ACSF 1 to 3; Bandscales 2+ to 4).  The three texts cover the same basic material, with gradual increase in linguistic difficulty and content complexity. 

The Workbook includes additional background information for teachers on CPR, sea mammals, fish, sharks and sea birds, as well as our usual language and content exercises at the same three levels as in the reading texts.

A sound CD includes an experienced Australian ESL teacher, Lyndal Reid, reading the texts, a song to reinforce the information contained in the book, and some coloured images which teachers can print or use as slides.
