Incredibly informative, but overly wordy, this PowerPoint walks viewers through the process of wind erosion, attempts to arrest crop-driven loss of topsoil, and the different types of wind erosion. Have your earth science class read through the slides at home. Create a worksheet to accompany the presentation, and then discuss the information in class.
Young scholars 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.
This is not revolutionary, but it is informative. Earth science viewers in grades 7-12 get carried away with wave and wind erosion. They view diagrams of how waves impact ocean shorelines. They see examples of the different types of sand dunes and how they are formed. This is a terrific addition to your lesson on weathering and erosion.
