Mysterious Properties of Water
What happens to water when it gains heat? What happens to water when it loses heat? How can the formation of ice break big rocks into small rocks? Why do lakes turn over in the spring and fall? Why does ice float? These are some of the questions that will be investigated using hands on activities. In addition to process skills being covered, TEKS 4.5A, 4.5B, 4.5C, and 4.8B will be investigated. This session is designed for grades 4 and 5.

How Did This Get Here?
Students use stream-table models to observe that water moves earth materials from one location to another, adding another piece to the story about how soils form. They review the processes they saw in the stream table and sort a set of landforms cards into two categories: formed by erosion or formed by deposition. Students are introduced to processes that cause rapid changes to Earth’s surface: landslides, earthquakes, floods, and volcanoes and answer the following questions:
How do weathered rock pieces move from one place to another and become part of soil?
How do erosion and deposition create landforms?
What events can change Earth’s surface quickly?
3.1A, 3.2A, 3.2B, 3.2C, 3.2D, 3.2F, 3.3C, 3.4A, 3.4B, 3.6C, 3.7A, 3.7B, 3.7C

Aerology and Remote Sensing on Mars
How can we figure out what is on Mars without setting foot on the Red Planet? Samples from Curiosity and satellite images can provide amazing information to increase our knowledge. In this workshop we will simulate geologic core sampling and remote sensing to give an accurate view of this neighboring planet by conducting two different NASA-created labs.
