Erosion: Changing the Face of Earth

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.

Lesson Planet has helped me to locate interesting lessons for my classes, especially at this late stage in the game. It also helps me to find out new ways to reach different modalities.
