In this environmental science activity (page 3 of the PDF), leaners will identify and explain the causes of erosion.
In this outdoor activity, learners investigate the relationship between the slope of a trail and soil erosion.
Learners use beach profile data from a local beach or online data from Ocean City, Maryland to investigate coastal erosion and sediment transport.
In this activity, young learners (2 years and up) explore flower and plant biology and pollination by planting seed in a homemade seed starter.
In this activity (p.7-8 of PDF), learners examine fossil formation.
In this activity (on pages 12-15), learners make a crater model and test the effects of weather (rain) on its surface.
In this activity related to climate change, learners create and explore topographical maps as a means of studying sea level rise.
This lesson will helps learners answer the question: How does the bombardment of micrometeoroids make regolith on the moon?
In this activity (page 11 of the PDF), learners investigate how quickly water moves through various materials. They measure and compare the permeability of gravel, sand, and soil.
This activity models some of the ways natural processes, such as erosion and sediment pollution, affect Earth’s landscape.
In this outdoor, beach activity, learners use tennis balls, water balloons and other simple devices to investigate the movement of waves and currents off a sandy beach.
In this activity, learners will model the mechanical weathering and erosion of rocks in a stream or river.
In this activity, learners investigate soil erosion. Learners set up a simulation to observe how water can change the land and move nutrients from one place to another.
In this activity, young learners (2 years and up) explore dirt and what is in it by painting with mud.
Learners build models of sinkholes to gain an intuitive knowledge of their physical aspects.
In this game, learners walk through an imaginary Carbon Cycle and explore the ways in which carbon is stored in reservoirs and the processes that transport the carbon atom from one location to another
In this activity, learners review and discuss weathering, erosion and mass wasting, to gain a stronger understanding of how Hickory Run’s Boulder Field was formed after the Laurentide Continental Glac
Through discussion and hands-on experimentation, learners examine the geological (ancient) carbon cycle.
In this three-part activity, learners use food to determine the effects of wind, sandblasting and water on regolith (dust) formation and deposition on Earth.
