Description:

This interactive Earth science visualization for middle and high school students illustrates the order in which sediments of different sizes are deposited by a river as it flows into a lake. A short animation accompanied by text boxes demonstrates that as stream flow progressively lessens, large sediments like gravel are the first to drop out and be deposited, followed by sand sediments, and finally by smaller clay-sized sediments. Students are able to use control buttons to play, pause and move forward and backward through the simulation. Copyright 2005 Eisenhower National Clearinghouse
