Rates of Weathering
Students will design experiments to examine how changes in surface area and temperature affect a tablet of Alka-Seltzer.
Student will investigate the effects of size, shape and mass on the settling rates of objects. Plastic, glass, and clay beads.
Student will investigate the effects of size, shape and mass on the settling rates of objects. Lead, copper, steel, and aluminum.
Stream Discharge Graphing Activity
Students graph the amount of different sized sediments and determine the carrying power of a river.
Surface Area and Weathering Rates
Calculate the increase in surface area and check out how chewing candy influences rates of weathering.
The Journey's End
By the end of this exercise, the student will be able to describe how size, shape and density of sediment grains affects their rate of settling, describe the vertical arrangement of mixed material after being dumped in water.
Water Molecule Model
Using clay and straws, students build a water molecule and investigate its properties.
Students will use the weathering rates graph to examine the different types of weathering that are predominant in an area.
Topographic Features of the Taku Glacier Region
The amount of snow and ice added to a glacier is called accumulation and causes the glacier to advance. The amount lost due to melting is called ablation that causes the glacier to retreat up the hill.
