Contributed by: Oregon State Department of Education

Students will design and conduct an open-ended investigation using a variety of earth materials to answer a question posed by the teacher: How does the erosion of sand compare with the erosion of gravel? After producing evidence that addresses this question, they will generate their own question that could be answered with further scientific inquiry.
