Foss Landform Kit Question

Help - I need the "recipe " for the Foss stream table landform activity. I have the entire kit - except for the manual. Gotta love that! If anyone can help, it would be awesome.

If you go to the FOSS website, all their stuff is online. The "manual" should be in the teacher resource section, and it will have the recipe in it. Good Luck! My kids loved that unit.

I don't remember the exact recipe, but I do know you want a lot more sand than clay. If I had to guess it would be like 5 parts sand to 2 clay or something similar. I don't think I ever really "measured."

Here is the information from Foss' website. The teacher videos are a good prep if you've never done the unit before.

(Check out the other activities while you're there...)

You should also advocate for your school to buy you the teacher's guide - it is vital to a kit like that.

Good luck! This is by far my favorite kit to teach with. It had made the most logical sense the way it is designed.
