Third graders define and recognize the characteristics of erosion based on their reading. In this erosion reading instructional activity, 3rd graders prepare a graphic organizer showing various types of erosion. Students answer comprehension question about erosion related to the book.
A Model of the Rock Cycle
For 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.
7th - 9th Science
Rocks, Minerals, and Erosion
Students identify and describe rocks that contain records of the earth's history and explain how they were formed. They formulate questions about and identify needs and problems related to objects and events in the environment, and explore possible answers and solutions.
3rd - 5th Science
Coasts and Reefs: Shallow Marine Processes
A more thorough presentation on coastal systems would be difficult to find! Detailed diagrams illuminate the offshore, shoreface, foreshore, and backshore zones of beach. The sources and movement of sediments along the coastline are explained with photographs and text.
9th - Higher Ed Science
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.
4th - 8th Science
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.
5th - 6th Visual & Performing Arts
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.
5th - 8th Science
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.
