Erosion

Fifth graders study what erosion is, what causes it, and ways to slow its progress. They complete an experiment that depicts soil moving down a slope as water is poured on it to show how moving water erodes land. Next, they observe examples of erosion in the school yard, and discuss how plants can slow the process.
