Description

In this lesson students will work with concrete. Students will
be learning the effects of proper mixture and
temperature.


Students will have a hands on project and work in groups of
4.


Students (each group) should carefully keep a journal of the
mixtures, ie. the amount in % and weight of the mix and amount of
water added.


Students will keep in the journal the temperature when the slump
test is performed. The results should be compared with each
group.


Note: Have everyone make a different mix.  Some should have
too much water so the concrete "slumps" during the test so students
can see it's important to see what NOT TO DO!
