After challenging themselves to correctly choose the form of erosion and length of time required for a given landform to develop, earth science class members model mechanical and chemical weathering with various lab demonstrations over two days' time. Video clips of erosion processes occurring in the Hawaiian islands can be shown, and the lesson can be concluded with an included Jeopardy review. Though the publisher states that the lesson was designed for high schoolers, it seems to be more appropriate for upper-elementary to middle school earth science classes.
Students explore mechanical and chemical weathering at stations. They articulate some mechanisms of chemical and mechanical weathering through exploration in a lab. Students stations describe how chemical weathering differs from mechanical weathering in a class discussion.
An excellent set of slides that progresses through definitions and lists of physical and chemical weathering to discuss and help your students make notes. The slideshow then works through examples of the weathering categories, such as types of erosion. It finishes with a slide of questions that summarize the points given.
Students observe and analyze weathering. In this earth science lesson, students demonstrate physical and chemical weathering in two experiments, then write questions for a class Jeopardy game.
Fourth graders study physical and chemical weathering. They explain how the processes of weathering and erosion change and move materials that become soil. They create a K-W-L chart to show what they know and list what else they would like to learn about weathering.
Students explore the Earth's crust. In this earth science lesson, students participate in 2 activities that demonstrate physical and chemical weathering. Students also play Jeopardy with topics including volcanoes, earthquakes, weathering, glaciers, and plate tectonics.
High schoolers will identify the factors that contribute to erosion and weathering. They will start by differentiating between chemical and mechanical weathering. They then apply what they learned by playing the online jeopardy game. Key ideas, resources, and links are included.
Seventh graders take an outdoor observation walk around the campus and take soil samples. Working in groups , they conduct experiments with rocks and soil that demonstrate the effects of different types of erosion.
Second graders explore weathering and how the water cycle plays a part in weathering. In this weathering lesson, 2nd graders put gravel and sugar cubes in a jar and shake, simulating weathering. Students use the scientific method to do an experiment and record their observations.
Students use GIS software to inspect types of weathering. After listing types of weathering on their own properties, they develop ideas to prevent or reduce this weathering.
In this weathering worksheet, students walk around campus and observe ten examples of both mechanical and chemical weathering. They answer questions related to their observations.
In this weathering worksheet, students will read through 15 statements and determine if the example given represents mechanical or chemical weathering.
In this weathering, erosion and deposition worksheet, students answer questions about the causes of weathering, the types of weathering such as mechanical and chemical weathering and resistance to weathering. They also write two experimental designs about weathering.
Fifth graders view photos and navigate a website to understand weathering. In this weathering and erosion lesson, 5th graders research through pictures and websites and complete a worksheet .
Students explore the basics of weathering. In this earth science lesson, students research images using Google search. They create a multimedia presentation about weathering.
Students discuss caves. In this science lesson, students experiment with how dissolution, a chemical weathering process, leads to the formation of caves. Once the cave is finsihed students draw a picture or describe in writing what it looks like.
High schoolers examine weathering and erosion. In this weathering lesson students determine climates and models the processes of weathering.
Fourth graders investigate how plants and their roots help slow the erosion process.
Seventh graders discover the types of weathering and how creatures that live in the soil benefit the soil. They discuss the soil as a valuable resource and explain the importance of its conservation.
For this soil formation worksheet, students will review examples of chemical weathering and biological weathering. Students will also review the different soil layers and how they are created. This worksheet has 6 matching, 5 multiple choice, 4 true or false, and 3 short answer questions.
