Watershed Works: Unit 1
By constructing a watershed model and identifying watershed features in it, they discover how water erosion changes the landscape. As with most watershed modeling activities, this one is costly in terms of time and materials. It is, however, one of the most effective ways to present watershed features or water erosion to your geology class.

Here is a geology lesson that is sure to get your charges excited. It's all about the process of weathering of rocks. Learners study natural events that can cause rocks to break apart. Some of these events are: ice wedging, plant wedging, abrasion, and the effects of water.

The Earth Around Us: Air, Water & Soil
Second graders explore erosion and find the factors effecting erosion of hillsides. In this erosion lesson, 2nd graders experiment by creating a hillside and simulating rain. Students discuss and record their results on a worksheet.

A Model of the Rock Cycle
In this rock cycle worksheet, students use different colored crayons to represent different types of rocks. They follow step by step procedures to model the rock cycle with the crayons. Students draw the rock cycle, show weathering, erosion, deposition, compaction, heat and pressure.

Exploring Beach Erosion in the Great Lakes
Fourth graders conduct an experiment. In this beach erosion lesson, 4th graders define erosion, brainstorm ways to stop erosion, view pictures and video clips of erosion, and complete an experiment that models the process of erosion.

Erosion on Earth
Students explore Earth science by collaborating on a research activity with classmates. In this erosion lesson, students identify the causes for erosion and the impact it has on our planet. Students research the web for information regarding erosion and geology before completing a Google Document activity with their entire class.

Wind Erosion And How We Can Prevent It
Fourth graders investigate wind erosion and how to prevent unwanted erosion. They define key vocabulary terms, create an interactive diorama that demonstrates how wind causes erosion and deposition of sand and soil, and watch a video.

Erosion: Natural or Unnatural
Students explore how water has the power to erode, how developing the land (building roads, buildings and parking lots) increases the amount of water reaching our rivers, and how this greater quantity of water increases erosion. They define erosion and explain why erosion has increased in the river.

Water Speed and Erosion
Fourth graders investigate the process of water erosion. They observe the roots of a plant and discuss the concept of erosion. Next, in small groups they conduct an experiment to observe how water erodes soil on a stream table, and watch a video about how canyons are formed.

Students evaluate earth science by conducting a geology experiment. In this erosion lesson, students identify the causes for erosion, the potential harm to coast lines and the true power of water. Students define a list of vocabulary terms and perform an erosion experiment using water, rubber tubes, plastic sleds, rocks and lunch trays.

Archaeology and Erosion
Sixth graders study how erosion affects archaeology sites. In this investigative lesson, 6th graders construct a model of a pyramid using sugar cubes. They will investigate in groups how water, wind, and sunlight affects their model using a control model and a camera to collect data.

Weathering and Erosion
Students conduct two experiments. In this weathering and erosion lesson, students identify the different ways that weathering occurs, name the natural elements of weather and explain the process of erosion. Students watch a PowerPoint on weathering and erosion and participate in two experiments to further examine these processes.
