This Measuring Slope for Rain Gardens lesson plan also includes:
- Lab & Experiment
- Join to access all included materials
The slope of the land is an important feature when considering the erosion that will occur. For this resource, which is part of a rain garden unit, learners calculate the slope of the proposed garden site. Even if you are not planning a garden or using the entire unit, this lesson can be easily used in any earth science class during the erosion unit.
- A functional field sheet can be used in conjunction with the publisher's unit, or alone in an erosion lesson
- Incorporates math and science for a common goal
- Provides practical experience using a line level, and in measuring and calculating slope
