Product Description
This is a complete pack of labs and summary questions to teach physical and chemical weathering in depth. It has an answer key included. There are also additional questions that could be used for assessment

-4 stations or mini-labs (chemical weathering, weathering by abrasion, how composition affects weathering rate, and particle size).
-answer key
-summary questions for each lab
-weathering questions after completion of all four activities

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:
particle size: smarties or similar candy, stopwatch
abrasion: calcium chloride (water softener) tablets or similar, plastic bottles with top
composition: plastic bottles with top, samples of halite and granite
chemical weathering: calcite, limestone, gypsum, granite, dilute HCl
