Erosion and Landslides
A professional-quality PowerPoint, which includes links to footage of actual landslides in action, opens this moving instructional activity. Viewers learn what conditions lead to erosion and land giving way. They simulate landslides with a variety of soil types, then create a public service announcement warning of possible landslide.

Students research geology by completing an experiment in class. In this erosion lesson, students discuss how water can affect rock and cause land to become mis-shapen based on the power of waves. Students utilize rocks, watering cans, cups and buckets to conduct an erosion activity which they write about on a worksheet.

Rills and Thrills: Erosion Affects Me
Young scholars discover earth science by writing descriptive paragraphs. For this erosion lesson, students identify the causes for erosion and define the different types of erosion such as wind, water and ice. Young scholars write a description about the three different erosion types and their scientific causes.

Vanishing Coast: Erosion
Students evaluate earth science by examining a group of images. In this erosion lesson, students discuss how the force of water can reduce land and coastlines by the process of erosion. Students complete a worksheet about erosion, conduct a water experiment and listen to stories from an Alaskan Elder.

Inroads On Erosion
Students investigate the concept of farming as found in Puerto Rico an focus on how to prevent erosion. They use a sand table to conduct an experiment to observe the process of erosion and how it is influences by natural factors like rainfall.

Earth Science: Erosion
Learners investigate erosion. In this hands on erosion lesson, students construct a model to explore how changes in soil may have occurred. Learners will build a model, explore its function in relation to erosion, and then discuss their findings.

Water Erosion - Mud Slide
Students investigate water erosion by participating in an experiment. The teacher supplies a mound of dirt with objects pressed into the surface. Water is them poured on top of the mounds creating erosion. The objects create pinnacles on the surface of the mounds.

Erosion and Deposition
Fifth graders study the processes of erosion, transportation, and deposition in soil. They walk outside the school to see examples and then accurately create a physical model which shows each type of soil movement and allows them to investigate how these changes may have occurred.

Sand Investigation: Wind Erosion
Students investigate the effect of wind on land. In small groups they construct a sand mound and blow on the sand, recording the results. They then add to their pile using plastic chips, pebbles, or coins, and observe if their newly selected material effects the wind erosion.
