In this activity from Hagerstown Community College, students examine sand samples from various locations around the world. Using a hand lens and dissecting microscope, students will compare the size, shape, and color of the grains that make up the different sand samples, as well as looking for fossils, gems, and other minerals that sand often contains. This lesson includes activity directions as well as two variations of a student activity worksheet.
