Track the Prints
Grade Level: 6th; Type: Earth Science
The goal of this project is to demonstrate how tracks are formed. The project offers students an opportunity to experiment with the amount of moisture and dry materials necessary to impact the “dirt” properly. Students also reverse the process and make prints of the track.
