[GeoBox guide]

This exclusively-designed transparent plastic container with two interchangeable lids offers hands-on exploration of many earth and physical science topics. The flat topographical lid, along with the included landforms, allows students to trace contours of elevation and create a topographic map. The convection chamber lid with two 3-inch-high smokestacks gives students an upfront view of the development of a convection cell. Also use the versatile GeoBox to demonstrate the water cycle, investigate the difference between heating and cooling of land and water, study wave speed, and much more.
