Dust in the Wind; Chemicals in the Water
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.
Weathering and Erosion
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.
The Changing Earth
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.
Plop! Plop! Fizz! Fizz!
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.
The Changing Earth
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.
Breaking it Down
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.
Science:Effects of Weathering
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.
Science: Richmond's Weathering
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.
Weathering, Erosion, and Deposition Study Guide
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.
Weathering Agent Identification Activity
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 .
Weathering Photo Story
Students explore the basics of weathering. In this earth science activity, students research images using Google search. They create a multimedia presentation about weathering.
Breaking it Down - Weathering and Erosion
Students examine weathering and erosion. In this weathering instructional activity students determine climates and models the processes of weathering.
Weathering and Erosion Splashdown
Fourth graders investigate how plants and their roots help slow the erosion process.
Weathering and Soil Formation
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, high schoolers 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.
Virtual Field Trip
Fifth graders are introduced to the concepts of weathering and erosion. In groups, they rotate between different stations to discover how each process effects different landforms. To end the lesson, they discuss each change in the environment and how to slow the effects of erosion.
Weathering & Erosion
First educate, and then quiz viewers on the ins and outs of weathering and erosion. At a level appropriate for upper elementary or middle school earth scientists, these slides display animated graphics and photos. The first 22 slides break down the difference between mechanical and chemical weathering and then relate it to the process of erosion. The remaining slides present 10 critical-thinking questions to reinforce the concepts presented. You may want to update a few of the photos as they are of poor quality.
