Essential Science for Teachers: Earth and Space Science
In-depth interviews with children that uncover their ideas about the topic at hand.,The interviewer builds on the student's prior knowledge about sand coming from rock by probing further to find out her ideas about how the sand ends up on a beach. He probes beneath her responses by trying to uncover why she thinks the sand comes from the ocean and why she thinks waves make sand out of rock. He challenges several ideas by asking her for an explanation and presenting other phenomena such as what

Soapy Stress
To experience the three types of material stress related to rocks — tensional, compressional and shear — students break bars of soap using only their hands. They apply force created by the muscles in their own hands to put pressure on the soap, a model for the larger scale, real-world phenomena that forms, shapes and moves the rocks of our planet. They also learn the real-life implications of understanding stress in rocks, both for predicting natural hazards and building safe structures.
