This is a lesson generated by a local teacher called “Hitting the Big Time with Climate Science” – Science, Grade 5, TEKS 1-4, 7 & 8. Students will create a speleothem model using art sand to create “drip castles,” similar to those many students make at the beach, reinforcing their growing understanding of time in the weather/climate analysis, and deepening their understanding of the relationship between the geosphere, hydrosphere and atmosphere.
