This product includes instructions and a student lab report for a soil erosion investigation. This activity can be done very cheaply, and it could also be extended into further investigations. In order to complete the lab, you will need some soil, tin foil, a flat plastic storage container, and a few pieces of sod from the yard.
Students will explore the effects of erosion at different angles and through different materials. They will then try to construct something to protect model houses from erosion.
Also included is a review guide and a summative assessment for a unit on soil. The review guide can be given the day before the quiz.
My students really enjoyed these investigations about soil erosion!
