|Link to Resource:||https://mysteryscience.com/rocks/mystery-3/weathering-destructive-forces/57?r=861314&s=social%3Apinterest|
|Resource Type:||Classroom Activities; Curricula and Instruction|
|Summary:||In this Mystery, students will explore how solid rock breaks apart into smaller pieces through a process called weathering (including root-wedging and ice-wedging.) In the activity, students will model the process of weathering that occurs when rocks tumble and crash into each other using sugar cubes in a container.|
