Product Description
An engaging two part lab containing 2 levels of labs for your Earth Science, Environmental Science, or inclusion class! This combines one of my Chemistry 1 metal oxide labs with a new mechanical weathering lab. The follow up analytical questions are geared towards common core mathematics modeling concepts. NGSS, State and Common Core standards are all presented.

The first page is background information. It is written for an inclusion classroom and actually replaces our textbook. It gives all the essential information for the main types of weathering.

Part 1 lab involves the reaction of acid with the metal oxide coating of a penny. Highly suitable for middle schoolers or high school special education students.

Part 2 lab involves mechanical weathering of various common rocks. Highly suitable for gifted middle schoolers or average high schoolers.

Very safe labs. Can be done in a lecture room if necessary. Only precautions are goggles and close-toed shoes. Household chemicals and products that can be purchased at local retailers are used.
