Bring earth science to life with this versatile density flow model, developed by a teacher. These teacher demonstration models are the most complete, most useful tools for simulating the realistic flow of fluids in nature (i.e. weather systems, ocean circulation, and plate tectonics).
This kit complements Earth Science, Physical Science, General Science, or Integrated Science curricula in grades 6-12. This density flow model can help to meet National Science Standards in your classroom. The accompanying 64-page manual includes setup instructions, student activity copy masters, and answer keys.
With fascinating demonstrations, you can easily expand the Density Flow Model kit into an entire science unit. Using the illuminated flow of colored fluids, students can visualize abstract concepts. Specific activities include simulations related to: air masses, fronts, global wind belts, internal water waves, haloclines, thermoclines, water masses, and more.
Challenge students to use scientific inquiry techniques to explore the following topics:
- Freshwater and saltwater systems
