This fun-filled lesson encourages students to explore the effects of water on the weathering of rocks. Students will participate in two hands-on science investigations that prove rocks can be eroded/weathered by water. The first experiment demonstrates the effects of rushing water on a rock and the second experiment demonstrates the effects of rain on a rock. Your kiddos are sure to love this activity. Included is the See-Think-Wonder thinking routine, lab recording sheets (with answer key), and the "Creative Questions" thinking routine.
