#82: Search for Sea Glass


Sometimes people throw bottles in the ocean or sea. When they break, they either remain sharp (and bad for bare feet!) or become sea glass. If bits of broken glass stay in the ocean long enough, it gets worn down by sand and waves. Sea glass is what we call the worn down pieces. These pieces are smooth and no longer sharp. Sometimes you can find bits of pottery washed up on shore too. See what you can find on the beach.

Safety First: When playing or exploring near the water, make sure you have an adult with you and play safe!


This activity promotes environmental awareness and visual identification skills.

  2. This sea glass was found on a beach in Sidney, BC. There is an amazing amount of sea glass there as well as bits of worn pottery.
