These lesson plans are designed to help students understand the large role that cement and concrete products play in their everyday lives. When the program is finished, students should not only understand the difference between cement and concrete, but should have a working knowledge of the science underlying the composition and behavior of the material. Lesson titles include:

1: The Uses of Concrete

2: What are the Parts of Concrete?

3: A Further Look at the Content of Concrete

4: A Collection of Aggregates

5: So, You Think Concrete Dries Out?
