Ward's® Exploring Deposition of Sediments Lab Activity
Educational Classroom Kits and Activities
Study Sediment Deposition, Transport, and Distribution
- See factors involved with sediment deposition
- Includes sedimentation tube and multiple sediment sizes
Students can see how particle size, shape, and density affect the settling rate of various materials by testing how quickly they settle in the specially constructed four-foot-long sedimentation tube. Through observation, and recording and graphing the settling rates, students compare the results and draw conclusions about sediment deposition in nature. It comes with a teacher’s guide and student copymasters.
