Chandler School in Pasadena Teaches Earth Science Through Investigations

Chandler School in Pasadena, California offers a sixth-grade earth science class to get students excited about the atmosphere, biosphere and geosphere. Teacher J.J. Newman recently guided students in a weathering-erosion-deposition station rotation investigation. Students explored major geological processes by imitating natural forces (using items like sand, a hair dryer, and a big ice cube). Then, students observed and interpreted the results. Chandler School is a co-ed, K-8 independent school with 450 students in the San Gabriel Valley of greater Los Angeles. Learn more by visiting
