Category: Tags: ,

Our Weathering and Erosion lesson plan introduces the difference between the two terms. This lesson provides ample opportunity to leverage concept imagery and sensory stimulation with the use of videos and images from websites, as well as in-class hands-on experiments that demonstrate the effects of weathering and erosion over a long period of time. During this lesson, students are asked to engage their critical thinking skills with an interactive before and after activity that helps them understand the impact of weather and erosion on landforms. Students are also asked to match terms with their definitions, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson vocabulary.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define weathering and erosion and observe and identify slow changes to Earth’s surface caused by weathering, erosion, and deposition from water, wind, and ice; explore and record how soils are formed by weathering of rock and the decomposition of plant and animal remains.
