    • Recommended Grades: 2-4
    • Number of Students: 24 working in six groups of four
    • Hours of Lessons/Activities: 10+

    Students will investigate forces that cause the earth surface to change. They will design a simulated rain event. Students will also show how different soils react to rain events, build and design dikes to control erosion and make a structure that can withstand a simulated earthquake.


    Major Concepts & Big Ideas:

    1. What conditions are necessary for rain to occur? How does rain shape Earth's surface through weathering and erosion?
    2. What soils are best for absorbing water and reducing erosion on Earth's surface?
    3. What happens to water as it flows down a river or stream? How does flowing water help change Earth's surface?
    4. Design and build an area that helps control erosion due to rain.
    5. How can we control erosion in our local environment?
