Product Description
Complete lesson plan including

• answer key
• step by step implementation guide
• 4 stations (one on each type of erosion - wind, water, gravity, and glaciers).

These are hands-on stations with readily available household type materials. They can be done as a jigsaw activity, where each group does a short (or more involved) presentation on their station. They can be done as a rotation where each group or each person goes to each station.

I have used these activities as an introduction to the unit, as main labs, after notes, or even as a lead in to develop more in depth experiments.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Materials list:
Gravity: spoon, small amount of various size sediments, cardboard, protractor

Wind: hair dryer or fan, different size sediments, trough (a piece of gutter or the trough that often comes with a stream table works well, ruler

Glaciers: block of ice (frozen the day before; good to have a few extra as they melt), gloves? Bin or dishpan of mixed size sediments, bin of sand.

Running Water: stream table with mixed sediments, stream table or bin with sand, hose or running water for stream table.
