Time: 30 minutes

Purpose/Topic: Maritime Environment
AoPG: Physical, Social, Intellectual
Take the Joey Scouts to a beach (river or sea). Set them to collecting ‘interesting’ things. (You may wish to provide more guidance, depending on your location.)
After some time exploring and collecting, gather the Joey Scouts together and get them to tip their collections into a pile in the middle. As a group, sort the collection (possibly ‘natural’ vs ‘man-made’, ‘animal’ vs ‘plant’ etc.). Discuss the classification as you go.
