Product Description
This engaging bundle combines the Earth's Crust and Rock Cycle Unit with the Weathering and Erosion Unit. Save $$$ by purchasing this bundle. Each product is also sold separately in my store.


The Earth's Crust and Rock Cycle unit includes:

Activity 1: Classifying Rocks Students classify rocks into 3 groups using observations.
Activity 2: Rock On!: Students simulate the rock cycle using gum and pop rocks.
Activity 3: Pangaea Activity: Students create a puzzle using the continents to demonstrate Pangea.
Activity 4: Shake it Up: Students create structures out of toothpicks and mini marshmallows and then test their strength in an earthquake simulation.
Activity 5: Stress Me Out!: Students use a miniature candy bar to simulate the 3 different types of stresses on the Earth’s crust.
Activity 6: Word Wall and Word Wall Activities
An optional post test and grading rubric are also included.


The Weathering and Erosion unit includes 4 inquiry based activities to help students develop a conceptual understanding about weathering and erosion.

Activity 1: There She Blows: Students investigate wind erosion using a straw and sand.
Activity 2: Sticks and Stones: Students investigate water erosion with a mudslide simulation.
Activity 3: Sugar Cube Shake: Students investigate mechanical weathering with a sugar cube experiment.
Activity 4: Chemical Weathering: Students investigate the impact of chemical weathering using temperature as a variable.
Activity 5: Weathering and Erosion Bingo: Students wrap up the unit by playing Weathering and Erosion Bingo. This serves as a great review of vocabulary. A supplemental thermometer reading practice is also included.
An optional post test and grading rubric are also included.
