Educational Classroom Kits and Activities
The Exploring Mechanical Weathering Lab Activity Shows the weathering of rocks on the Earth’s surface.

  • Students observe how the environment effects rocks
  • Developed by Ward's geologists
  • Teacher's guide included
  • Aligned to NGSS standards (MS/HS: ESS1, ESS2)
It’s easy to recreate the process of mechanical weathering in the lab. Students can observe what happens to different rock samples when each is shaken and abraded in a container of water.

Their findings help them understand the various factors that influence mechanical weathering. The lab includes a teacher’s guide and student copymasters.

The kit is also available for purchase with a link to a NewPath digital lesson, which includes a variety of resources on the topic, including background information, illustrations and self-assessments.
