Reflection: Lesson Planning Erosion Tables - Section 4: Measurement and Conclusion


Cleaning up after an experiment like this can be cumbersome. What I do is ask my class to help. I choose a helper based on their roles from the group work. For example, to dump the sand on the playground I ask the time keeper to take the tray and do this. For dumping out the water, I ask the recorder to do this. I give each role a job to help clean up and it goes by efficiently and quickly.

Big Idea: Using water tables with sand, students will use two different types of cups to show what occurs during a regular rainstorm and one where there is heavy rain. They will compare their results.
