Reflection: Student Feedback Using Skittles to Learn about Weathering and Erosion - Section 4: Evaluate


I really enjoyed this lesson for my students because it permitted them to use skittles. The skittles  served as a real world application for the students. Students learned that water can cause weathering which breaks things down and that erosion can move things along. This experiment helped my students to make that real-world connection.
