Weathering Rocks

This resource also includes:

Fourth graders investigate what natural events cause rocks to break apart and differentiate between erosion and weathering. They conduct an experiment with plaster of paris to observe why some rocks are hard and others break, and observe a demonstration of erosion using sand, water, and objects on a tray. Students then independently complete a worksheet.
