In a series of compelling classroom investigations, students create models of rivers and river features, gaining a deeper understanding of rivers as dynamic ever-changing systems. The table-top river systems enable students to observe thousands of years of erosion in minutes as they explore geological concepts such as erosion, deposition, geological time and environmental issues, and as they model the effects of pollution, toxic waste, and dam construction. |
Participants receive the 120 page River Cutters Curriculum (a $20 value), produced by the Great Explorations of Math and Science (GEMS) program developed at the Lawrence Hall of Science.
