Surface Processes

Weathering and erosion are described with photos, diagrams, and text in this set of 48 slides. Both physical and chemical weathering processes are introduced, as well as the factors that affect the rate of weathering, and types of soil that result. Different transport agents for erosion are also examined at an upper elementary or middle school level. While you may want to make a few alterations, this presentation is a strong start for your own slide show.
