Product Details

Have your students become amateur geologists! Flowing water has the power to make constant and dramatic changes to the Earth’s surface. Geologists examine the size, type and location of particles deposited by water to learn more about the history of a landscape. In this all-inclusive exploratory kit, students will identify and classify sediments of different sizes. The sizes of the sediments will be measured and averaged to obtain a deeper knowledge of each type of sediment. A great activity to strengthen measurement skills and introduce sediments. Includes reproducible student handouts, complete teacher notes and all chemicals and consumable supplies needed to perform the lab.

Complete for 30 students working in pairs.
