Find Wind Erosion educational ideas and activities
Learners 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. Learners write a description about the three different erosion types and their scientific causes.
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.
Third graders examine changes in nature during a nature walk. In this natural change lesson, 3rd graders participate in a nature walk as they look for signs of decomposition, erosion, and deposition. They learn the associated vocabulary, and determine how the changes affect the ecosystem.
Students evaluate earth science by examining a group of images. In this erosion lesson plan, 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.
Ninth graders explore soil erosion. Through a class discussion, they examine soil conservation methods. Given a potted plant, 9th graders observe the effects of erosion when water is poured over the soil. Students brainstorm terms related to erosion. They write in a journal about activities that cause erosion.
Fourth graders explore how the landscape of the planet can be changed by different elements of wind, water, ice and chemicals through hands-on activities. They examine pictures of areas around town and discuss anything they think is out of the ordinary in the pictures. After creating hypotheses about what has happened in the pictures, they conduct experiments in groups about the type of erosion they believe to have occurred.
Students investigate the Earth's major landforms and how they occur, and how engineers apply this knowledge for the design of transportation systems, mining, and measuring natural hazards. They listen to a teacher-led lecture, match vocabulary words with definitions, and answer discussion questions.
