Ward's® Exploring Mechanical Weathering Lab Activity
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
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.
