Today in class, we discussed all the ways that water (and in different forms) weather, erodes, and causes deposition. Here are a few videos we watched in class…and a few more interesting ones!



Activity 1

  1. For today’s lesson, please read the Duckster’s article, Earth Science for Kids: Erosion.  At the end of the article, in the activities section, take a ten question quiz by clicking on the work (link) “quiz.”
  2. If you accidentally click on the wrong thing, you may get to the quiz here.  At the end, click “done” to see your score. Do not click off of this page!
  3. Raise your hand and show your score to the substitute.

Activity 2

Go to the National Geographic Weathering and Erosion article.

  1. Click through each of the 10 pictures answering the questions on the sheet as you go.  Be sure to read the directions! And…be sure your answers are the absolute best you can make them!  You will (and should) need more time than today to complete these questions.
