What are the different kinds of tides?

There are many different types of tides. They all have a different name, such as high tides, low tides, spring tides, and neap tides. All of the tides are caused by the Moon. Every day there are four tides. There two high tides and two low tides every day. If you know about tides then you will know why the water level goes up and soaks the things that you left on the beach and then came back to.
