In this environmental science activity (page 3 of the PDF), leaners will identify and explain the causes of erosion.
Start a Rock CollectionAdd to list Details
Learners follow a three-step process to start their own rock collection.
In this activity, learners will explore reptile biology by taking temperature readings in various places and comparing them.
In this outdoor activity/field trip, learners investigate organisms that live along the ocean's rocky coast.
Making Music in Nature
In this activity, learners will explore the ways natural materials can produce sounds. Appropriate for any age, learners can make individual music or create a symphony with others.
Infant Moon: Moon Mix!Add to list Details
In this activity, learners investigate the Moon's infancy and model how an ocean of molten rock (magma) helped shape the Moon that we see today.
In this activity (located on pages 9-14 of PDF), learners visit a cemetery to examine the distinguishing characteristics of rock weathering.
In this activity (on pages 6-11), learners work as a team to investigate how impact craters on Earth, the Moon or other planets take shape and what patterns they make.
Kid Moon: Splat!Add to list Details
In this activity, learners model ancient lunar impacts using water balloons.
In this activity, learners model erosion using a clear shoebox and sand or soil.
Making RegolithAdd to list Details
This lesson will helps learners answer the question: How does the bombardment of micrometeoroids make regolith on the moon?
This display shows slow chemical reactions in colorful crystal formations known as Liesegang Rings. These reactions are similar to those forming the rings in agates.
Grow Rock CandyAdd to list Details
Learners grow sugar crystals (rock candy). They make a hot solution that has an excess of sugar dissolved in it, then as the solution cools, they see sugar crystals form.
Creating a Soil Map
In this activity, learners investigate soil conditions by creating a soil map. Learners record soil characteristics and compare the conditions of soil in different grid sections.
In this activity (on pages 30-36), learners simulate a dig for ancient pollen, to experience how paleobotanists study fossilized pollen in rocks to learn about early geological and climatological even
How Boulders Are Born
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
Regolith FormationAdd to list Details
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.
Make impact craters with marbles (or rocks or washers) in a container of flour. Find out what you can learn about your "comets" by the craters they make.
Carbon Cycle Roleplay
In this creative roleplay activity, learners will explore the various processes of the carbon cycle using movement and props to aid in comprehension.
Make a Comet Model and Eat It!Add to list Details
In this activity, learners build models of comets, using edible materials, to learn about comets' structure.
