In-Class Activities with Lincoln Elementary School Students

Written by Alyssa Burley.

On Thursday, May 28, 2015, Project Cornerstone's Alyssa Burley and EnviroMINE's James DeCarolis visited three 5th-grade classes at Lincoln Acres School in National City, CA.

Students learned about construction aggregates (i.e., sand, gravel and crushed stone) and how they are used to build roads, homes and schools in their communities.

The program included a presentation and construction aggregates, a sieve analysis to determine which type of sand is best for making concrete, and student were able to make small concrete projects to take home.
