Why Lesson Planet?
In this weathering and wind worksheet, students simulate the effects of weathering by wind using 2 canisters, 2 types of sandpaper and 2 sugar cubes. Students swirl the sugar cubes inside the canisters lined with fine and course sandpaper. They study the effects on the sugar cube and record their observations. Students answer 4 questions about their results and complete the lab by writing a conclusion.
