Fun in the Sand

At the stream tables, we learned all about the geology associated with streams and even got to create our own stream simulations. We talked about relevant terms such as erosion, deposition, meanders and braiding in order to better understand the process and classify the patterns that our stream was creating. We built islands, pools, and even attempted to make a dam out of sand to see how it would affect the water flow. It was a lot of fun as well as a great opportunity to test out our construction skills!
