After completing this activity, students should be able to recognize that waves, wind, water and glaciers all
break rock and soil into smaller particles and move them around. Students in grade 6 should also be able to
explain how the flow of energy drives these processes.
Earth Materials and Systems
Real World Science Topics:
- An exploration of how Earth materials influence landforms
- An exploration to describe processes that change rocks and the surface of Earth and determine the most
efficient agent of erosion
In this activity, students will learn about the nature of light, make predictions about and assess its ability to
pass through various substances. Students will learn that the material of the object in the light's path will
determine the light's ability to pass through it.
