Chandler Sixth Graders Explore Earth Science

Published : Friday, December 1, 2017 | 1:41 PM

Chandler teacher J.J. Newman gives the sixth graders in her earth science class many hands-on experiences. In her class, students explore the atmosphere, biosphere and geosphere through projects that bring their learning to life.

Newman’s students recently undertook a weathering-erosion-deposition station rotation investigation. In it, they explored major geological processes by imitating natural forces using items like sand, a hair dryer, and a big ice cube.

Then, students observed and interpreted the results.
