Sands of the World

Unit 6: Oceanography
Lesson 3 of 6

Objective: SWBAT observe sand samples and then find the possible origins of the sand on a world map by plotting the latitude and longitude.

Big Idea: Since sand comes from a "mother", or source rock, it is possible to determine what type of rock produced the "baby rocks." By studying sand very carefully, we can determine the "mother" and learn more about its origin!
