This lab is a lab that we did with a group of students at a wetlands experience camp. I worked doing wetlands camp for 2 years and also do a program that is geared at fun learning at the local library. This is one of the labs that we did. The kids loved it.
I took what we did and put it into a formal format so I could use it with my students in environmental science. These students range from 9th -12th grade. Since we live in coastal Louisiana where erosion is evident and a big problem, we take an entire unit and devote it to learning about causes and solutions. We also study hurricanes, subsidence and invasive species at this time.
Every time I have used this, they enjoyed it and got something out of it. The discussion that came out of it was amazing and many of my students who are silent had something to say.
As with all of my materials, it is editable and can easily be adapted to any classroom where you are learning about erosion. I know formatting also changes when i upload so be sure to check before printing.
