The practical activities in this resource provide an introduction to earth science through an investigative and problem solving approach. The experiments can be carried out in any order and integrated into an existing scheme of work, and are ideal as part of a circus of activities around the classroom. The activities can be developed for longer term investigations if required.
The activities cover erosion, weathering, sedimentary rocks, metamorphic rocks, acid rain, types of crystals, fossils, flint tools.
Warwick Process Science was compiled by an experienced team of teachers from comprehensive schools, mainly in Leicestershire, in collaboration with the University of Warwick.
