[G04-P05] An Example Geoscience Class of Model Experiment of River Process Utilizing EMRiver Color-coded Media

*Norihito Kawamura1 (1.Faculty of Education and Human Studies, Akita University)

Keywords:EMRiver, Lower middle school, Upper middle school, Meandering river

The author conducted a geoscience class for lower and upper middle school students. The modele experimantal apparatus for river process could develop utilizing EMRiver Color-coded Media supplied by Little River Research & Desing, US. This device can form meandering river in small box such as 50cm X 30cm. Responces by the students in a geoscience class are as follows,
"Good because I could observe geomorphology such as meandering river and ox-bow lake. " and
"My prediction for results on model experiment was wrong. It was interesting".
This apparaus may intense understanding on morphology of river.
