Patrons model the effects of wind, water, and impacts on a planetary surface using sand. They will compare the surface features they modeled with images of planetary surfaces to see if they can determine which process caused the features in the images.
|Hints for uses in your library||This activity is designed as individual stations that patrons rotate through for a long activity. Consider breaking it up into smaller activities by doing a station a day/week at story time, or as part of any other sensory activity program you conduct.|
