Y3 Science investigation – Which rock will erode the most?

In Science, we have been learning all about rocks. The children learned what erosion is and were really interested in the impact of erosion. They were especially keen to find out more about rock falls on our coastline. The children worked collaboratively in small teams to test whether slate or chalk would erode the most in the two minute time limit. They discovered that chalk eroded the most and concluded that was because chalk is a soft rock and slate is a hard rock.
