Creating Sand Dunes

Learners explain how sand dunes are formed, the different circumstances that effect the movement of or formation of sand dunes, and relate the information gathered to soil conservation. In this sand dunes lesson, students use pans of sand, stones, grass clumps, and 2-speed hair dyers to observe what factors affect the kinds of sand dunes the wind creates.
