Description

The Earth is always changing. Weathering, erosion and deposition and the movement of tectonic plates cause slow and rapid changes to the Earth’s surface. In this program, your students will participate in hands-on inquiry with actual rock samples and observe natural processes of change at our interactive stream table. A focused student activity helps students discover the dynamic, natural world as they explore the gallery. Bring Earth science to life in our outdoor learning lab!

Students Will

  • Investigate erosion with an interactive stream table
  • Explore the processes of weathering, erosion and deposition and discover how the earth is changed
  • Sort and describe different types of rocks and their characteristics
