In this activity, students experiment with sand and hair dryers to observe how wind, sand, and barriers interact to form sand dunes.
Real World Science Topics:
- An exploration of wind deposition
- An exploration of Earth's landforms
Students will gain an understanding of forces and materials that shape the surface of Earth to produce landforms such as sand dunes.
