Beaches are sandy areas along the coast of an ocean or lake. People go to the beach in the summer to swim, build sandcastles, collect seashells, and get a suntan. It is important to apply sunscreen to your skin so you do not get sunburnt. It is also important to swim near a lifeguard. (3-page lesson)
