Grades 7, 8

Earth science

In this lesson, students will be asked to predict the movement of water over defined landforms.  Students will have the opportunity to use an Augmented Reality (AR) sandbox to see how water flows over landforms and how the motion changes when the landscape changes. Students will then have the opportunity to view a second model, stream tables, to see erosion and sedimentation in real-time.
