Scientific Saturdays:   Layers of Earth Projects and Earth Science Power Points

A - Scientific Saturdays: Layers of Earth Projects and Earth Science Power Points (maybe integrate Leo Geo for younger grades, maybe make layers of earth cake or cake balls to reward students for hard work)

I gave him a rectangle of property. Each play dough color represents a type of soil or rock. Where should he build a house? Where should he dig a well?

The Play Dough Way to Learn about Core Sampling

I gave him a rectangle of property. Each play dough color represents a type of soil or rock. Where should he build a house? Where should he dig a well? He must use "core sampling" to determine the answers.

DIY geodes science experiments - the results are amazing...Keep this one handy! Kids will love it!

To make beautiful DIY geodes in your own kitchen you need more patience and time than anything else! Here is the basic recipe - great project idea craft - these would be fun gifts

So in love with this! Create a model of Ocean Zones (layers of the ocean) using a jar and several household ingredients!

Make Your Own Ocean Zones in a Jar

Create a model of Ocean Zones (layers of the ocean) using a jar and several household ingredients! Objectives: Identify the different layers of the ocean. Describe what lives in each layer of the ocean. Use small motor skills to pour objects into the jar.

Simple Science Experiment: How Clouds Make Rain - MJCS

Simple Science: How Clouds Make Rain

Simple Science: How Clouds Make Rain. When rainy weather hits and you're stuck inside this simple science experiment is perfect for teaching little learners how clouds make rain.

STEM Challenge: Build an earthquake resistant house and then try it! Give it some vigorous shaking for 15 seconds! Will it stay upright?

Oh my goodness...I am in LOVE with this experiment idea!!!!! I can't wait until Earth Day and our Lorax unit!!!! :-)

Possible school experiment to show importance of wetlands/riparian zones! This shows the importance of plants in our soil. Plants like trees and grasses help purify ground water. Without them the ground water gets polluted and harder to clean and drink.

Teaching science can be engaging with this hands-on activity. This experiment helps students see that weathering and erosion can be slowed down but not stopped. Check out this science teaching idea for your elementary classroom!

Weathering and Erosion

This site provides an idea and an example of an experiment that helps students learn about erosion and the different types of soil or rock and how they interact with other elements in nature. A flip chart and worksheet packet is sold by TPT.
