questions 1-3,5
Students will take their understanding of weathering and erosion and perform several
activities throughout the class period around the room (Advanced class labs will have
some variations).
Students will use stream tables and perform several tests to determine how the
angle, volume of water and type of material determines the formation of a river.
Students will see the erosional and depositional processes at work. Students will
design investigations of their own to further their understanding of these
Students will create a type of sedimentary rock.
Students will look at the process of erosion through other means, such as friction,
gravity and weather phenomena.
No Homework
Finish conclusion questions for sedimentary rock lab stations (sea water investigation, stream
table, weathering lab). Students will review their igneous and sedimentary rock quiz.
