Beach Safety
Beaches are a great choice for summer fun.You can swim, surf, and build sand castles. However, it is important to remember basic safety tips when visiting the beach.The sand at the beach can be extremely hot because the sun shines on it. The sand heats up very quickly, so one way to keep your feet cool is to wear swim shoes. They can protect your feet from the hot sand. 
Always remember to protect your skin from the sun. Apply sunscreen at least 15 to 30 mins before going out into the sunlight. Reapply more sunscreen after you win because the water can wash away the sunscreen. 
Have fun but stay safe on your next visit to the beach! 

Let’s look at a cause and effect in “Beaches Safety.” 
The word because signals a cause and effect relationship. 
What is the effect? (The sand feels hot.) 
What is the cause? (The sun shines on the sand.)
Is there another cause and effect in “Beach Safety?” 
That’s right. You apply sunscreen.That is the effect. 
Why will this happen? That’s right. Water washes the sunscreen off. That is the cause. 
Good Job! Tomorrow, we will be making our own cause and effect charts.
