Shake, Rattle and Erode

Students measure how much mass is worn away during 15-20 minutes of shaking. They shake rocks for 15-20 minutes to simulate stream erosion. Students listen to music as they shake their rocks. They weigh out 100 grams of marble chips. Students place them in a jar and fill it 1/3 full of water.
