SCIENCE
Fun with Erosion!

Submitted by: Gabrielle Coburn
From: San Diego, CA
Date Submitted: January 26, 2005

This can be done outside or inside in smallish tubs. Have each group make two piles of dirt or sand: one that's just the dirt/sand with some toy cars or people on it, and one that has little sticks and branches and twiggs sticking out of it as well. Then use spray bottles, pitchers, or cups of water to replicate rain. Have them notice where the erosion happens and the difference between the two, they'll begin to understand the effect of deforestation on our earth. Very relevant to sections on weather, environment, and flora.
