Mineral Formation and Identification Refill Kit
Mineral Formation and Identification Refill Kit
15481

Investigate the rock cycle. What is a rock? What is the rock cycle? How do rocks form? How are they classified? Your students will answer these essential questions as they conduct a series of hands-on activities. Using the set of rock specimens included, they will observe the distinct characteristics of each type of rock and explore the igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic processes of rock formation. Your students will Understand the processes that form igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks. Identify rocks by their physical characteristics. Classify igneous rocks as extrusive or intrusive. Classify sedimentary rocks as clastic, organic or chemical. Classify metamorphic rocks as foliated or nonfoliated. Model the effects of metamorphism on rocks. Relate different types of rocks to the processes of the rock cycle. Class Size: 40 Students. Grades: 7-10.

Mineral Formation and Identification Kit
Mineral Formation and Identification Kit
15480

Introduce your students to the world of minerals. Provide your class with a hands-on lesson in the formation and characteristics of minerals. Using the set of specimens provided, the students observe the distinct characteristics of minerals and perform a variety of tests to classify them with respect to hardness, streaking, color, luster, specific gravity and reaction to acids. They'll also grow their own microcrystals to understand how crystals form beneath the earth's surface and what environmental conditions are required. Your students will identify minerals based upon their physical properties. Determine the hardness of common minerals using Mohs scale of hardness. Examine the crystalline structure of minerals. Calculate the specific gravity of mineral samples. Predict the reaction of specific minerals to hydrochloric acid. Investigate how crystals form from liquids. Class Size: 40 Students. Grades: 7-10.

Coriolis Effect Kit
Coriolis Effect Kit
15232

Used to simulate effect of earth's rotation on winds, ocean currents or unattached objects such as rockets. As sphere is launched across surface of base, when it is static, sphere traces a straight line. As turntable is put in motion, centrifugal force launches the sphere which, though traveling in a straight line, leaves a curved trace on rotating surface. Size of curve is in direct ratio to speed of rotation. Each kit includes one 14" diam. base (with outer retaining trough) mounted on a turntable, and featuring a reusable "magic slate" type erasable trace recording surface, removable launcher, 5/8" diameter steel spheres.
