Erosion: A Battle of Forces

Erosion: A Battle of Forces | Science Fair Projects | STEM Projects
The land is constantly changing due to the forces of nature. We can observe how erosion works by using sand, water, ice, and wind.


The hypothesis is that erosion can be demonstrated in different ways.

Method & Materials

You will observe how sand dunes form, how windblown deposits are created, how water weight erosion affects the earth, how glaciers cause erosion, and how landslides form.
You will need sand, newspaper, a jar with lid, a box lid, a spoon, water, paper, and pencil.


Through these experiments, we can observe how the forces of nature shape the land around us. We can see how erosion works by using sand, water, ice, and wind.

Why do this project?

This science project is unique because it allows students to observe how erosion works in different ways.

Also Consider

Experiment variations to consider include observing how erosion affects different types of soil, or how different types of wind affect erosion.
