WeatheringAndErosion Weathering And Erosion
What is Erosion?
Day 1- Overview of Types of Erosion
Do you see signs of Erosion Exposed tree roots Cracks in the soil in a river bank Clumps of grass in the river The top part of the river bank overhangs. Brown or colored water Collapsed river bank
What is the difference between Erosion and Weathering? Weathering happens when the rocks break up Erosion can happen over a long period of time
Erosion There are many kinds of Erosion. Here are a few: Wave Action Running Water Landslides Avalanche Glaciers Slump Creep Rock Fall Mud Flow
1908 to 1969 Another type of Man made erosion is Acid rain
Wave action is when waves hit the rocks and pieces of rock break off.
In this picture the running water eroded the sides of this canyon and created the V-shaped valleys.
This is a picture of a landslide. A type of mass wasting.
In this picture the land has slumped into the road below.
This is a diagram of creep. The hillside slowly slips over many years from temperature or water.
This is a picture of a glacier. How does it carve out the earth ?
Day 2- Types of Erosion Kidspriation
We are now going to create a Kidspiration project to show the different types of Erosion
Do we have Erosion in Decatur Township?
Each group has a picture, what caused your erosion?
Tomorrow you will create a model of your erosion problem.
What materials will you need? Write it down
Day 2- Create your Model
Day 3- Erosion Prevention Action Plan Using Media Blender
Day 4- Erosion Prevention Media Blender Action Plan Continue to work on your projects
Day 5- Final Day for Finishing our project Remember: You need the following activities turned in: Research Sheet Kidspiration Document Media Blender Project
