Earth Science Activities
An exquisitely simple demonstration in which you literally form a cloud with your own two hands. The thunder and lightning are up to you.
In this activity, a sling psychrometer will be constructed and the relative amount of humidity in the air will be measured.
What is the difference between water of high salinity and water of low salinity? What effect does density have on water currents? Perform simple activities to answer these questions.
In this activity, students will be introduced to the formation of stalagmites and stalactites.
How fast is the wind blowing? How can wind speed be measured? In this activity, a handheld anemometer will be constructed to answer these questions.
What are glaciers and how do they form? What effects do glaciers have on the land? In this demonstration, a simulated glacier will be constructed and used to help answer these questions.
