This is an erosion experiment done comparing which type of natural erosion occurs the quickest: rain, glacier melting, or wind. This would be a great activity that could be done in class when talking about natural types of erosion. The students could postulate which they think would work the fastest, do the experiment, and write up their results which we could talk about as class.

Science Erosion Experiment—Water, wind, and glacial. The students could experiment with which type of erosion causes the most change and what could be done to prevent it.

The HeArt of Teaching - We who educate know the depth of work required to bring learning to our many students. We know the personal sacrifice of time and resources.We know that while others may think our day ends at 3 PM, our students and their learning are on our minds around the clock, seven days a week.  We do it because we love the kids.  It’s pure and simple.
