Product Details

What impact do wind and rain or atmospheric conditions have on rocks? In this wide-ranging student lab kit, students will experiment and observe how mechanical weathering, geological changes, glacial changes, ice expansion, chemical weathering, oxidation and organic processes affect the rock specimens provided. Students observe which types of rocks are most affected by these processes and identify which chemicals and weathering processes have the greatest impact on rocks. Kit includes eight lab activities.

Complete for 30 students working in pairs.
