Water and Waves

Students made wind by blowing or waving an object and tried to make waves. Using a long straw, short straw, fan and "half plate". They are observing how the force of the wind and the direction of the wind impacts the hydrosphere and geosphere.

    Earlier in the week we observed how the temperature of water impacts the movement of waves. We looked at direction and speed.  Did erosion or deposition occur?  Using the slo-mo feature in the camera allowed us to really look at the speed and movement of the water.
