Building BingoAdd to list Details
In this on site "field trip" activity (located on pages 6-9 of PDF), learners get hands-on experience identifying building materials by playing "Building Bingo".
Gravestone WeatheringAdd to list Details
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, 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?
Shake and BreakAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners will model the mechanical weathering and erosion of rocks in a stream or river.
A Hole in the GroundAdd to list Details
Learners build models of sinkholes to gain an intuitive knowledge of their physical aspects.
The Carbon Cycle: How It Works
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
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
Through discussion and hands-on experimentation, learners examine the geological (ancient) carbon cycle.
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.
Weathering and Erosion
In this multi-station lab, learners conduct a series of experiments to explore the processes and effects of weathering and erosion.
Weathering and Erosion
In this activity (page 13 of the PDF), learners discover how weathering and erosion change the Earth’s surface.
In this earth science activity, learners conduct a series of short experiments to explore how rocks change.
The Crayon Rock Cycle
In this activity, learners use crayons to draw conclusions about rocks and the rock cycle.
Rock Cycle Roundabout
In this activity, learners will learn how igneous rock, metamorphic rock, and sedimentary rock are formed as part of the rock cycle and that the same forces that produce/change rocks also produce/chan
