About This Chapter
Earth Science Experiments - Chapter Summary and Learning Objectives
As you work through the lessons in this chapter, you will be presented with earth science experiments that can be used in the classroom or at home. The purpose of using these experiments is to help reinforce students' understanding and knowledge of earth science concepts. Ultimately, we want to make science fun! People who would benefit from this chapter include students, teachers and parents. The types of experiments that can be found in this chapter include those related to:
- Air pollution
- Soil erosion
- Solar ovens
1. Air Pollution Experiment
In this experiment, we'll be studying how different environmental factors, such as the number of trees or cars, affect air pollution. By the time you're done, you'll be able to explain why certain areas have more air pollution than others.
2. Soil Erosion Science Fair Project
In this project, we will be comparing the erosion of soil that has plants with soil that does not and will be able to answer the research question ''How can plants affect soil erosion?''
3. Solar Oven Science Project
Let's design a solar oven! Using a cardboard box, aluminum foil and varying insulation materials, you'll find out which materials allow for the greatest change in temperature, and thus the greatest amount of solar energy captured.
