Erosion Lab collage

5th grade scientists in Mrs. Bon's science lab have been learning about landforms and how they are created. With the help of a new manipulative purchased with money from a GIFT Grant, the students were able to conduct an experiment to actually see erosion take place. In the lab, they watched vocabulary words come to life as they poured water through a "rain maker" and watched as it moved and deposited sediments in areas where the force of the water became to low to push it any further.

Thank you, Gunter GIFT, for helping to make science come to life in our lab!
