This fun-filled lesson encourages students to explore the effects of ice on the weathering of rocks. Students will participate in a fun, hands-on science investigation that proves rocks can be eroded/weathered by wind. Your kiddos are sure to love this activity. In this lesson students will create their own model rock from clay. Students will take several days to model the freeze/thaw process to determine if a rock can become weathered from ice.
