Water falls to the surface where it collects in rivers, lakes, and oceans.
Landforms are the result of a combination of destructive forces such as erosion and constructive forces such as deposition of sediments.
Student groups use a Mini Stream Table to investigate the dynamics of stream erosion and deposition. Using specially engineered materials students create, observe, describe, and interpret the erosional and depositional patterns created when rainwater flows over an area. Some of the features commonly formed include canyons, braided streams, and deltas. This kit is designed for use with six groups of four, or at most five, students.
